"Exceptional Heart Service"

About: Freeman Hospital

I was discharged yesterday from Ward 24A after four days, during which time I had a planned heart operation and two days later a pacemaker fitted. Afterwards I was cared for by the fantastic nursing staff on Ward 24A. This was the first time in 65 years I had been an inpatient in hospital and I was not looking forward to my stay. This was an unnecessary worry. I was kept fully informed during each procedure, the nursing staff were the best anyone could wish for and I can't thank them enough. Sometimes you negative comments,however in my experience I have nothing but good comments praise and respect for this five star rating service.
