"Emergency admission for heart failure"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

I was at the end of my treatment for colorectal cancer,within 2 weeks of a stoma reversal,when within another week,I had a stroke and then a heart attack. Then,all along the line from the Ambulance to A&E to the ward and to my consultant and the nursing team,I was bought back ,virtually, to life.Every action was fully explained,and I left the hospital with admiration for the team work that they all exhibited,and I for one, will never complain,when inevitably,some things don't quite happen the way they should. Thank you Arrowe Park Hospital cardiology department, A &E and the nursing teams.
