"Care after a heart attack at Rotherham Hospital and Northern General, Sheffield"

(as the patient),

The A&E at Rotherham were very efficient and my treatment at Northern General was very good and prompt.

My rehab at Rotherham was delayed due to uncertainty about chest pain which was diagnosed as muscular due to a previous operation. When I saw the consultant at Rotherham my notes were still at Northern General and I would have liked to have been seen at Northern General and for any further investigations on treatment but this was denied me.
