"An unintended visit with a positive outcome"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

I was a patient on Jan. 30, 2014 after arriving by ambulance from Heathrow Airport after having an emergency on a flight from the USA. I was seen promptly, treated with courtesy and concern by the Doctors, nurses and other staff and stabilized within a few hours. I was released with appropriate medication and an advisement to immediately return if the condition worsened, and to follow up with my physician upon my return home. I am very impressed with the service provided by the Hospital and its staff. My wife and I thank you.
