About: Basildon University Hospital

I was recently taken to the unit after suffering a severe heart attack that rendered me unconscious. On slowly waking up I eventually found that I had had a triple bypass. I spent a further few days in Colne and Chelmer wards. The staff worked as an integrated team no matter what job they did. Whilst I was away with the fairies I understand from my wife that my family were cared for as well in what was an anxious time.. I would like to thank you all for the wonderful work that you do.
