I was rushed to William Harvey after walking into Medway Hospital (Which didn't get a very nice review from me to say the least) for chest pains. I was made to wait for 40 minutes at Medway, before anyone even saw me, but luckily my luck changed the second I went into the back of the ambulance. Two lovely paramedics and a technician rushed me as fast as they could through rush hour traffic and got me there in just 30 minutes. Upon arrival, I remember going down a dark corridor and initially thinking I was dead. The rest was a blur, as soon after I went into cardiac arrest. The next thing I remember is waking with immense pain in my head and chest to see hundreds of people surrounding me all busy trying to I guess save my life. It then turned out that I had an angioplasty an stent done. The staff were extremely friendly, and I would say they went above and beyond the call of duty and knew exactly what they were doing (well they must have, I'm still here) ! The next 3 days were also very comfortable and I felt well looked after. So a massive thank you to all the A&E team who saved my life, and the nurses on ITU for making my stay very pleasant. I would love to return, under different circumstances of course ! and would recommend this hospital to every person I know (Not that they would get much chance to put in their preference when having a heart attack but still) so a massive thank you to everyone who was involved in my care. Unfortunately the same can't be said for Medway.
