"Chest pains.. a false alarm."

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

I was taken to Pembury Hospital late on Sunday 26th January, with chest pains. I was astonished at the superb level of care and consideration which I received. I had ECG investigations three times over several hours, a number of blood tests and an x ray. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the two doctors who treated me and the several nurses with whom I came into contact. I cannot praise too highly the concern with which I was treated and the very substantial reassurance and courtesy which was given to my wife and son. A big 'thank you'. Please pass on my thanks, I shall come again!
