"Everyone was very kind, efficient and very professional"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Cardiology Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

Visited my GP at 5pm on a Wednesday.

He fortunately is a cardiologist and I was sent to Royal Hallamshire Hospital the next morning at 8: 30am for an ECG.

This confirmed my GP’s diagnosis of ‘heartblock’. I was quickly transferred, by ambulance, to the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, by 11am that day. I was monitored in the Chasterman wing (cardiothoracic).

The next day, Friday, I was fitted with a pacemaker and returned home the next day.

At my GP and both hospitals, everyone was very kind, efficient and very professional.

Thank you.
