"Emergency Admittance"

About: Glenfield Hospital

My father was admitted as an emergency and needed a pacemaker. The care he was given was excellent and the operation saved his life. The staff were wonderful and treated my elderly father with respect and kindness. My family and I regard ourselves very lucky that my father was admitted to the Coronary Care Unit ward 18 as we now have him back with us and he is back to his old self and we appreciate him even more. Thank you so much for the hard work and dedication all the staff have shown and I hope they realise how much it is appreciated by patients and their families. Thank you.
