"Could not have been treated better anywhere"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Accident & emergency Good Hope Hospital / Cardiology Good Hope Hospital / Respiratory medicine

(as the patient),

Had chest pains on Saturday morning. Went to my local hospital, Robert Peel at Tamworth and was ambulanced to Good Hope.

Could not have been treated better anywhere. Was kept informed throughout diagnosis and told what would be happening.

Basically was kept in for 24 hours, moving from A & E to assessment ward and finally to cardiac care ward over night for observation.

Was released by surgeon Sunday morning, but only "moan" is I had to wait for four hours for tablets. No criticism at all of treatment and staff were brilliant.
