"Not as Good as last time"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Wife had to call 999 at 1.30am Tuesday 22nd September, Due to me having Chest pains, even after me taking my GTN spray, Paramedics arrived gave me additional medication, which calmed the pain down, they did a ECG, which shown a slight change since my heart attack last year, However after being admitted to Royal Bolton, The Dr said I never had an angina attack,and don't suffer with angina, Yes I do as I have unstable angina which I know my own body, However they did diagnose me with Type 2 Diabetes, which they treated then sent me home to see my GP, no advice on what to do about my new condition and more importantly no explanation of the chest pains, The way I have been treated as put me off ever going here again, even if I know I'm having another Heart attack, I had my own medication which was locked in a cupboard and nurses only gave me my morning tablets and not the afternoon one's my wife spotted this when we got home. Last year I could not have asked for better care after my heart attack, but this visit, the care was not there, Salford Royal for me in future
