"Excellent Livesaving Care"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary / Cardiology

On Weds 07/09/16 my partner was brought in to the MRI by paramedics following a massive heart attack. We went straight from ambulance to Cardiac Cath Lab. There was no waiting time at all. Doctors and nurses were waiting for my partner and gave him immediate, lifesaving treatment. Without their excellent and skilled care delivered in a compassionate manner he would no longer be alive. The staff were also extremely kind in meeting my personal needs as I was obviously extremely stressed at the time. My partner is now home recuperating and it is thanks to the wonderful staff at the Acute Cardiac Centre that he is home. Even if I had to nitpick and find a fault I could not. The care give was wonderful and I would have no hesitation is recommended this wonderful hospital.
