"I owe my life to this hospital"

About: Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital / Cardiology

I had two heart attacks in April 2014. I was transferred to Broadgreen from Whiston. I spent 15 days on Birch ward, followed by a quadruple bypass and then 6 days on Oak ward. I am now fit and well and in excellent health for a man of my 67 years. I was fit enough to care for my wife during her final illness last year. I would not be here if it were not for the skill, the care, the teamwork and the support of everyone I met at Broadgreen. Thank you everyone.
