"Doctor showed little interest in me"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Cardiology

(as the patient),

Heart attack Oct 09 admitted Queens for 3 /4 days. I thought the Doctors who saw to me showed very little interest and asked few questions. I feel like I was left with little information except I was told, “It is too deep for an operation”. However, I was not told what was too deep or where it was on what to do to alleviate in any way the problem.

I was told there was some sort of class I could attend but I felt this was without any explanation about it on what it could do to help me. In the state I was I did not appreciate the value it could be to me so I declined.

I now feel I could have made a wrong decision.

The food could be better or could be a lot worse, nursing was good. I wonder why they moved me to a different ward at 3.30am first time and 1.30am second time.
