"suspected heart attack"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency Lincoln County Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

was admitted to A&E approx 4pm by ambulance with a suspected heart attack, a blood sample was taken and I was given aspirin

Because all beds were busy I was not sent to the mea unit until 1 am

Transferred to the mea short stay unit approx 7pm and then to cardiac short stay ward at 1am the next day.

Had angiogram the morning after that which revealed that I had not had a heart attack but had suffered an SVT incident

Discharged that evening with adjusted medication

all staff were excellent
