"Excellent care in Cardio Day Unit"

About: The James Cook University Hospital

In December 2013, I had a catheter ablation done, which is a routine procedure. However, I was extremely nervous and all the staff were wonderful, reassuring and professional. From my first consultation through to the procedure and being discharged, everyone was first class. Everything was explained fully and the team in the catheter lab were exceptional. I would have no hesitation about any further procedures, although hopefully I will not be returning! Many thanks to everyone.
