"My first ever hospital stay was so good it was..."

About: Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

I went through a number of tests and examinations at the LHCH prior to being admitted for heart surgery in April 2016,the operation took place on Tuesday morning and I was back home on Friday the same week. I have worked in some of the most advanced companies not just in the UK but throughout the world and I have never experienced such professional teams as they have at the LHCH and they should be considered as the Gold Standard. On my first visit I noticed how everyone worked as a team and they were so efficient no wonder they looked so happy in their jobs. Everyone from the cleaners to the consultants should be proud for what they have created in the LHCH. There must also be a world class management team behind the front line teams to make it what my GP said: they were ‘The Best’. For those of you that want to know my operation was for a Mitral Valve Repair.
