"Fantastic care"

About: Borders General Hospital / Cardiology Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France / Cardiac Surgery

(as the patient),

Angina which became unstable, ambulance to Borders General Hospital Ward 5 (Cardiac), monitoring, tests and looking after.

Ambulance to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary Ward 103 for angioplasty.

The care I received from EVERY INDIVIDUAL in both hospitals was second to none. Thank you.
