"slow recovery but feeling much better"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Heart failure team

(as the patient),

After having a fall walking my dog I was helped by men working at the Willwood Avenue home. They called an ambulance. After many tests for breathlessness, Dr Welch fitted a pacemaker!

It has been a slow recovery, but with help from the heart nurse and of course the hospital staff I am feeling much better, but being 84yrs old I am thankful to all concerned.

All our team members are very dedicated and are proud to receive such acknowledgement.
