"From My Heart!"

About: William Harvey Hospital

By rights, I should not be here to write this review. I had a massive heart attack five days ago. Fortunately, I arrived at William Harvey within the hour and within a further hour the blockage in my heart had been removed, the damage to the artery repaired and the intense pain completely alleviated. The dedication and morale of the staff in this exceptional establishment was awe-inspiring, particularly the nursing staff. On behalf of myself, my wife and my two young children I literally thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing me back from the brink of certain death and giving me the opportunity to see my kids grow up!
