I was admitted via A&E for assessment and eventually admitted to the cardiology unit. The paramedics who attended were excellent, and gave me confidence, the A&E staff were very busy, but throughout the night I was reassured of being cared about. Although I was allowed to go home the Doctor from A&E phoned to see how I was managing, I admitted I was not and was advised to return, I was then admitted to medical assessment and treatment was started, I was moved to Ward C, and there I was seen by the consultant and was moved to ward 37 or 38. There I again received reassurance throughout.
I was treated over the weekend and seen by a doctor who explained what had been happening and what would happen over the next month or so. I have since been to the anti coagulant clinic, started on treatment, and have two other appointments linked to cardiology. Throughout all the staff and doctors have been considerate, and caring. They have answered all questions and explained why treatment is necessary. Thank you to all involved
