"Superior care from GWH NHS hospital."

About: The Great Western Hospital

Having collapsed in Swindon whilst walking with my wife, Wiltshire emergency services were with us within 4 minutes. I was taken to the A and E department at GWH where I received excellent care and attention from the staff, who quickly diagnosed my problem. I was moved to the Acute Cardiac Care Ward and within 48 hours had a pacemaker fitted leaving hospital some 24 hours later. I found communications between the departments dealing with my case were exceptional. The attention and care given to both my wife and myself was exemplary, a service that we would describe as second to none. We would like to thank all the staff at GWH for their continuing commitment to patient care.
