"Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital / Cardiology

Attended for Chest Pain Clinic on 19 September: terrific treatment, friendly staff, clear instructions and considerate apparoach to a demanding treadmill routine, and thus a daunting prospect, likely to challenge most peoples' confidence. Duty staff were extremely encouraging and took care to explain the process, which followed without a hitch. The follow-up session was on time, and excellent. The treadmill results were given thoughtful, consideration, and brisk, direct and searching questions were asked totry to find an appropriate diagnosis and a meaningful outcome. Impressive stuff - very many thanks to all.
