(as the patient),

What I liked

The staff in CCU were amazing. They were helpful, reassuring and kept me informed at all times. Nothing was too much trouble, they tended to my every need as it I was the only person they had to worry about. I even received a phone call the day after my release to make sure I was okay with all the medication and I didnt have any problems. Absolutely fabulous, at a time when I was at my worst.

What could be improved

The waiting time in A & E before seeing a doctor was over 31/2 hours. I saw a nurse and HCA and had some tests done but then waited for over 31/2 hours to see a doctor.
