"They were all amazing"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Cardiology Hairmyres Hospital / Emergency department

(as the patient),

Thursday night went to A&E with chest pain at around 9. 45pm. Was taken straight in and given all the appropriate ecgs and blood tests. Also taken for a chest X-ray. Within an hour I was being treated for a heart attack. By 2 o'clock I was checked in on the ward. Thankfully it turned out not to be my heart attack but if it had been the speedy service from the nurses and doctors at that late time of night would have given me the best chance.

Thank u to everyone at A&E and ward 3 including porters, X-ray, nurses, doctors, consultants, cardiologists that made my visit as easy as possible.

They were all amazing!
