"Care after a heart attack"

About: The Great Western Hospital

I was taken into hospital as an emergency, having a heart attack. I was so well looked after, was kept up to date with all the decisions being made about my treatment, was visited by the consultant who carried out the balloon angioplasty only two hours after the procedure, and he explained very carefully what he had done. I was then re admitted four weeks later with chest pains, and was again beautifully looked after, and saw my consultant again who explained what was happening and what will be done in the future. The nursing staff were very caring and kind, as were the doctors. I am having coronary rehabilitation now, which is very very well done, and it has given me so much confidence. all in all, I am very happy with my treatment and the care I have had. Thamk you so much GWH!
