"emergency admittance to Ward 6"

About: Heartlands Hospital

Sunday evening I experienced severe angina pains at home in Tamworth phoned 999 and paramedic in attendance within minutes having regard to previous history taken by ambulance direct to Heartlands. Within 2 hours of onset of pain had stent fitted and back on to ward 6! Treatment, aftercare consideration thoughout my stay absolutely first class. I was discharged and back home in less than 24 hours from my 999 call. Grateful thanks to all the team involved. Already a huge improvement - reduced breathlessness and no chest pain. Brilliant. Regards Harry
