"Admitted for heart attack"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

I was admitted in the early hours of Thursday morning with a heart attack and had a stent fitted into one of my arteries, at the time I was on my own so the memory of the first couple of hours were hazy! but I remember the ambulance drivers being wonderful in their treatment of me as were all the staff in the hospital.The hospital was clean and well run, the food was good and my treatment was explained to me by the staff nurse. All of the staff were wonderful and I will never be able to thank them enough for their professional caring attitude, I was admitted to the hospital with a heart attack thinking that I was going to die and walked out 3 days later!
