"Bit complicated but was admitted ..."

About: The James Cook University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Bit complicated but was admitted with various problems twice in a week eventually had a heart attack whilst in A&E then admitted to ward 29 ,best care imaginable,constant reassurance,and smiling staff, had surgery again same level of care ,with good follow up work and plans for rehab,food changeover caused a few hiccups but very worth while,as much as this was a lifechanging event for me and my wife i will come away with some fond memories of my stay well done and thanks from the bloke with the dodgy bright jogger pants

What could be improved

stickier heart monitor pads a complete pain when contantly coming off
