"My husband's heart attack"

About: North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust

(as a relative),

My husband suffered a heart attack in May 2008. The ambulance took 20 minutes to arrive. However, the paramedic (who was expecting a colleague, and who didn't arrive) was excellent and we did the best we could.. John died. I do want to know if he would have survived if the ambulance had arrived earlier and if we hadn't had a 30 minute drive to Lancaster.
