On late Wednesday evening, I had to dial 999 as I had been suffering from chest pain from 4 o'clock that day.
I was transported by ambulance from the North of Glasgow to the Golden Jubilee Hospital, Clydebank, by caring and professional ambulance staff whom reassured they would get me to hospital quickly.
On arrival I was immediately taken to the cath lab where I was diagnosed with a blood clot in the right coronary artery. The consultant Mr Lindsay, quickly explained that he and his team would do an emergency angioplasty. With great speed and expertise they concluded and reassured me that it was a success.
Taken to a ward that night, where staff were attentive and professional. I was transferred to Glasgow Royal Infirmary to ward 44. There I was cared for with humour and professionalism until discharged four days later. I am now on my way to a hopefully full recovery.
I would just like to thank all the staff involved from transportation; operation, and the caring nursing staff, as I did not have time to thank everyone.
