"Medical Emergency with chest pains."

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Whilst staying with friends in Chorley i became ill with chest pains, whilst out shopping. My wife called medical assistance where a rapid response vechicle was with us within minutes. I was taken to Chorley Hospital and addmited into coronary care.Whist there I was treated like a very special patient whilst tests were carried out. The nurses and doctors were very professional and very caring. After being monitered over a 24hr period things started to settle down and i was able to be released to be referred to my own GPs back home in Wales. I want to say a big thankyou to all the lovely people that looked after me and I shall always remember their concerns and kindness. Regards Mr M Godfrey
