About: Lincoln County Hospital / Cardiology Walk-in Centre

(as the patient),

In January this year, Lincoln Walking Centre sent me to A and E due to a high Heart rate and pain in my liver.

After 2 days I was diagnosed with Severe Heart Failure caused by a virus which attacked my heart at the age of 38.

The Cardiac team were fantastic from start to finish during my week stay in Johnston ward.

That ward is amazing, even though I was very scared at the time and the youngest on CCU.

They helped me relax and slowly come to terms with it.

All I can say is Thankyou for saving my life.

All my scans etc... was all very quick.

Fantastic all round.
