"Bad Case of Indigestion."

About: Airedale General Hospital

Anything else?

O.K. Heart Attack. Firstly, I would like to apologise to a packed A&E on Sunday 22nd about 3:30p.m. Having given the lady on reception my symptoms I was whisked straight through to triage and consequently onward to Leeds General Infirmary where the waiting team performed the procedure and placed a stent in an artery. I was returned to Airedale the same evening and had tea and toast on my admission to ward 16. I know I am making light of the whole incident but throughout everyone concerned was calm and efficient which certainly relieved my stress during something that doesn't happen every day ( well not to me ). A&E - First Class, speedy, no nonsense care. Leeds General Infirmary - Saved my life ! Amazing, well set up operation that runs like clockwork. Ward 16 - Caring, knowledgeable staff who answered any question and made a pretty decent cup of tea even at silly o'clock when I couldn't sleep. I can only thank all concerned and commend everyone for their kindness and professionalism throughout my short stay. ( Evicted Wednesday 25th ) Please pass on my gratitude . regards Graham
