"Triple bypass at the Cardiac Centre"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I attended the Cardiac Unit on 3rd May 2016 for a triple heart bypass and was subsequently discharged on Friday 6th May.

The whole procedure went smoothly from start to finish and the care / compassion given by all of the medical professionals and support staff was absolutely first class.

While I am not in a hurry to repeat the experience .... if I had to then this is the place where I would wish it to be performed.

Great staff, fantastic facility.

Thanks folks, you are the best.

We have a patient story programme which allows patients and family members to relay their experiences directly to the Trust by video or audio recording. If you would like to participate in this please contact Eleanor.walsh@bfwhospitals.nhs.uk

I will ensure that I share this with the teams involved in your care.

Thank you and I wish you a continued recovery.
