"My dad as a patient on coronary care unit"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust

(as a relative),

My dad was rushed to the coronary care unit this weekend after having a heart attack at home. I want to say what a excellent nhs team we have right from the paramedic who was on the scene first, then the ambulance men and the team of nurses and doctors on the coronary care unit. Within three hours of it all beginning, my dad was in coronary care unit stented and back with us on the ward.

I can't thank you all enough for your swift actions that resulted in you saving my dad's life. As a nhs worker myself, I am so proud of my colleagues for their excellent care and skills
