"Care of my husband in Cardiac Unit"

About: Hammersmith Hospital

My husband was admitted by ambulance with heart problems and had a stent put in within an hour - a few weeks after that he had heart bypass surgery. I would like to say that he had the best care I could have asked for - all the cardiac team in the various wards he was in were kind and helpful and smiley, the wards were clean and not too big - so more personal . Every follow-up app, I found the same kindness - explaining things etc. Thank you to everyone from the time I called emergency services - to now. Five months on he is doing extremely well, we've been on holiday and he is now back to work - even his scars are looking so good people hardly noticed them on holiday. I would now say to anyone - if you needed this op - Hammersmith Hospital is the best place you could wish for - first class treatment and outstanding care. Thank you
