"Wonderful support"

About: William Harvey Hospital

On the 10th July 2013 i had a heart attack. The care i have been shown by all the cardiac team has been exceptional. The cardiac nurse who spoke to me following my first scare undoubtedly saved my life. She was brilliant. Then during my in stay prior to a procedure in London, the cardiac nurse was so supportive and kind, putting me at ease and reassuring me all the way. Post my opp, i have been under the care of Helen, an outreach cardiac nurse. She, once again is totally brilliant. her patients is amazing and her knowledge outstanding. It is so reassuring to have her available to answer my questions and silly doubts. Please pass this on to the management, they really need to know what a magnificent team they have. Thank you so much.
