"Chest pain - husband"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

On Monday 11th April 2016 I had to rush my husband in my car to the Rochdale urgent care centre, he was suffering with chest pain.

On arriving at the centre I rushed in leaving my car and husband on the ambulance bay.

I was directed to a nurse who then , with in seconds, got 4 Doctors/nurses, they all came out to my car and immediately started to calm my husband down.

They got him into a wheelchair and into the hospital and onto a bed were they got him more comfortable

My husband was having a heart attack.

They whole time they were helping him they kept me informed as to what was happening and what would happen next ( he would be transferred to Manchester Royal to have a stent fitted).

Within twenty minutes I was on my way to MRI with two wonderful paramedics.

I can never thank you enough for what you did for my husband you truly are angels.
