"My mother's heart attacks"

About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

My mother was admitted to A & E at the end of August, and on two further occasions in September. She was subsequently admitted to CDU, and also spent time on Kennington Ward and on the Cardiac Ward. We were both very impressed with the care my mother received, and how I, as next of kin, was kept fully informed throughout. All the staff were wonderful - caring, professional and friendly. Levels of cleanliness appeared very high. I felt secure in the knowledge that my mother was in the best place. Following heart surgery in St Thomas's Hospital in London, my mother is now doing well and we would like to thank all the staff at William Harvey Hospital.
