"Diagnosis and heart surgery in & out within 6 wks"

About: Basildon University Hospital

Anything else?

My wife was an emergency admission after passing out and spent a week in Colchester General & trips to Basildon for tests, culminating in an Ablation operation at Basildon this week. Admission was 5 Jan and is now back home sorted on 16 Feb.

Treatment recieved at all stages from initial Paramedic attendance to Ward Sister's discharge briefing has been a masterclass in efficiency, timeliness, communication, coordination, professionalism and care standards on how to deliver NHS services to world class standards. An example for others to aspire to, glad we live in the UK.
