"Excellent treatment"

My husband was admitted on 3rd July as an emergency at 1.30 am. He was rushed to the cath lab and had 2 stents fitted plus other procedures. I was taken into a quiet room and given a cup of tea and told to wait. He was brought back to the ward about 3.30 am and was in for 4 days. The treatment he was received was the best possible and we are both extremely grateful that the paramedics took him to the CTC rather than the local hospital.
