"After having a sudden Heart attack, ..."

About: Southampton General Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

After having a sudden Heart attack, I went with my husband to A&E and can only say from the time of arrival to the time of leaving hospital, He received the up most care felt safe and well cared for we can't fault the hospital at all.

A1 Care

What could be improved

Bit more on what happens next after the attack, or a chance to have it explained as waiting for the clinic appointment seems a long time now. Nothing went in as we were both a little shocked we think, we were a bit worried maybe it would be good to meet up with a nurse or some one a bit sooner after leaving hospital.

Anything else?

Thank you so much for everything

Response from Southampton General Hospital

Thank you for your feedback, which we’ve passed on to the Emergency Department and cardiac teams.

Your husband should have been given contact names and numbers along with his discharge summary notes, so please do use these to get in touch with us ahead of the clinic appointment if you have any queries.
