"After having a heart attack at ..."

About: Southampton General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

After having a heart attack at 5.30 am Monday morning at work, I was whisked by ambulance to A&E at least 10 people attended me, and the took me straight through Angioplasty where I was treated immediately.

I was up to CCU by 9.30 am, trnsfered to E4 next day an home on Wednesday.

I could not have asked for better and more prompt treatment, all the Doctors and nurses were great

What could be improved

The noise from Heating/Aircon in CCU was annoying and obtrusive when you are feeling pretty poorly and couldnt sleep

Anything else?

New food service is far better than old system apart from no toast available at breakfast
