I had been suffering with Indigestion for about 45 minutes as we were driving past my doctors my partner made me go in, seen quickly by the doctor, ECG was OK but responded to GTN spray, quick call to the Ambulance service and whisked in through A&E, exceptional care, blood tests, heart attack. Admitted through AMU to the Cardiology Ward (38). Amazing nursing care, exceptional patience with old equipment that needs replacing. A day or so later - Nervous patient taken for angioplasty - given something - was wide awake, no longer nervous , no worries, felt like a bucket of cold water thrown over my arm, minutes later Cardiologist tells me there is a single blockage, Say its either Bypass Surgery or Stent - Still wide awake I say OK, 2 minutes later she says - done -off to recovery. This is the NHS at its best doing what it was designed to do saving lives. Thank you
