About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

I attended Grantham A and E on Saturday morning with chest pains.I was seen within 10 mins and then,after about 1.5 hrs of tests and lots of Q and A,was moved Blue Light to Lincoln.Waiting for the Ambulance to arrive was a Cardiology Team.I was taken immediately to the Cardiology Lab and underwent an urgent Angioplasty,which prevented an impending Heart Attack.I was moved to Johnson Ward by 1:30pm.I have nothing but absolute praise for everyone involved from Grantham Reception,EMAS,all of the medical staff particularly the Cardioligy team,housekeeping.Too many to mention.Words can barely express my gratitude to all of you working on the frontline,under intense pressure.Thank you so very very much.
