Ward
 

I'd like to express my admiration and respect for all those involved in my care when I was brought in by ambulance to your heart attack centre. To my shame, I don't remember the names of those who introduced themselves to me, but their care, respect and professionalism allowed me to put complete faith in them. While for me this was a huge crisis, it was never a drama. I now understand that my angioplasty with five stents was not as straightforward as was hoped, but the atmosphere in the lab was calm throughout. I spent two more days on the ward in Hammersmith, and everyone I came into contact treated me with care and dignity, from the paramedics to the surgical team, the porters, ward staff and caterers.

I must register my satisfaction with the very high quality treatment I received in the cardiac unit at Hammersmith Hospital. It was clear to me that meticulous care had been taken not only in your surgical procedures but also, for example, in the constant cleaning of the ward and in the provision of decent meals. To merely say thanks seems inadequate.
