"Heart Attack"

About: Harefield Hospital

I arrived at Harefield hospital within an hour of calling the emergency service. I feel very lucky to have been taken there, I was being taken to Watford General but had to change as a machine that was needed was being serviced, as it is a very famous heart hospital. Within an hour of arriving I had a stent put in and was in the ward. There is nothing to beat our NHS in an emergency. My treatment from the Consultant and his team was second to none and I thank them for the speed and efficiency of there work. I spent three days on Oak ward and my welfare and treatment was exemplary. Thank you so much to all the staff at Harefield hospital who made, what was a very frightening time for me and my family, the best that it could have been. Thank you from my, now almost good as new, heart.
