I suffered a heart attack and had an emergency procedure to unblock a coronary artery which was done by stenting. I am so pleased because i feel incredibly well right now. All i can say is UHI works
I was admitted with hypertension and have been here for a week or so. I was feeling terrible but the quality of medical care and attention from the medical staff has made me feel better. the services at UHI are very good and at a great price. I am looking forward to being discharged.
