"My heart attack"

(as the patient),

Some time before 11/07/12 I had a heart attack. I went to the dropin centre. I was given an ECG and told to go to the General Hospital at Moorgate to be more efficiently looked at.

I was seen by Dr Smith a Cardiac doctor. I was admitted into hospital and told I had had a heart attack. I was asked to have a coronary angiogram and was told I would need stents. So I was sent to the Northern General and was given an angioplasty.
