"Treatment for a heart attack"

About: Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital

I recently suffered a heart attack and required an urgent Coronary Angioplasty to insert a stent. I received gold standard treatment and the time taken from when I arrival at A&E to the Rotherwick Foundation recovery ward, was about one and a half hours. I cannot fault my experience and at every stage, medical staff were very polite and thorough at keeping me fully informed at every stage. I'm hugely grateful to all at this hospital who treated me, especially those at the Rotherwick Cardiac ward and convey my sincere thanks.
