"Being seen at QMC for a suspected heart attack"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Cardiology

(as the patient),

Arrived by ambulance via our family doctors surgery. Seen very quickly and had various tests done to determine if this crushing feeling in the chest was indeed a heart attack.

Test results back in a couple of hours which confirmed that I had a blocked bundle vein which was of course marvellous news in view of what it could have been.

Everything fully explained to me about what would happen from now on by a charming doctor and answered any questions that were asked. Top marks to your doctor and his staff and to QMC.

Response from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Great to hear your symptoms weren’t related to a heart attack. This must have been incredibly worrying for you and your family. I have shared your message with the cardiology team. It would be great to also share your appreciation with the Doctor you mention but we would need a little more information about your visit to do so. If you feel able to, might you contact nuhcommunications@nuh.nhs.uk so we can find out more?

Best wishes,

Caroline Sheppard.
