"NHS- My thanks"

About: Inverclyde Royal Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

On the 21st of May around mid-day with no warning i suffered a heart attack at home, living only a mile from Inverclyde Royal Hospital my daughter immediately put me in the car and got there in no time at all. I was treated at A&E immediately, the team there realising i needed to go straight to the Golden Jubilee Hospital at Clydebank approximately 20 miles away.By Ambulance with IRH staff and Paramedic i was whisked there straight away.

On arrival i was taken straight to theatre where a Stent was inserted into my right artery in my heart.

At 2.30 i was sitting upright speaking to my wife and daughter having undergone life saving surgery.

I cannot express my thanks in words to Ian and his team at IRH and all the team at the Jubilee. Long live our NHS.
