"Heart attack Wishaw General"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Cardiology Wishaw General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

Had an ECG in my house after suffering from chest pains. Taken direct to Hairmyres hospital and then had angiogram. Was then transferred to Wishaw General CCU department. I had a high temperature and some kind of virus.

The reason I tell this story is to thank all the staff and doctor for my treatment. My thanks to ward sister Carol, Fiona and Megan for looking after me through the night, Annette, Stuart and wee Anne the best cleaner in Lanarkshire who worked non stop. My thanks also to doctor White and her team.

My experience of the NHS, its staff and treatment were very good.
