What I liked
After referral by GP appointment in 5 days. During 3 investigative appointments I was seen
promptly and all staff were extremely efficient but also very friendly and reassuring. During my
angiogram the doctors were brilliant, all was explained to me and I was told what to expect
and what was happening. The doctor took time to explain to me the results and I feel
confident that when he carries out the corrective procedure needed it will be performed with
skill and care.The rapid access chest clinic and cardiology department are a great. hardworking team and I feel lucky that they are at my local hospital.
What could be improved
Very little. My only negative would be the tasty roast pork, veg and roast potatoes was cold.
Five weeks ago I never dreamt I would develop a heart problem. I now know this can happen
to anyone at any time.In Eastbourne we have a brilliant Cardiology team.Hearts beat for 24 hours and go wrong day and night. The thought that I could possibly have to travel to Hastings,and likewise my family with me, fills me with dread.This excellent department
must go on offering 24 hour access. Please keep 24 hour cardiology services
