One more step along the road

I was diagnosed with PAF late in 2015. I was then referred to an EP at the Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital. At the consultation earlier this month I was offered an abalation and placed on the waiting list. It was estimated I would be waiting approx two to three months. My question is as anyone on here had experience both good and not so good at the LH&C hospital. I am pleased that I was offered an abalation so quickly after being diagnosed. Thank you Roy

Yes, I had my ablation there. My wait was about 2 months. My EP is Dr Derrick Todd. Dr Richard Snowdon did my ablation. They are both excellent.

The facilities are excellent, single rooms ( no en-suite)

Food is not so good, but the breaKfast and supper toast is great.

The only problem I had was an arrhythmia nurse recording incorrect details.

And finally, if you can find the maIn entrance to get into the place then you're on to a winner!

PS if you want any further details then please pm me.


Had mine there, Dr Gupta, 5 years ago. Good experience all round for me. No real complaints at all, including after care.


Ablation at Liverpool late Sept. Nothing but good comments about the place and staff. Don't worry and go with the flow.

Yes the toast was good also the Ice Cream.

Thank you for your replies it's comforting to know the good experiences had by others. I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I wasn't nervous but it is reassuring to hear positive experiences. Thank you very much. Roy


Hi Roy,

Had one last have nothing to worry about mate..

Hospital is fantastic as are the staff..

You will be fine..



Thanks Robby much appreciated. Roy


I had mine there in December under Dr Todd. Don't worry - you will be fine. Jennydog was a great help to me when I was waiting, so message her and me if you want to know anything else.



You probably won't be in there long enough to even sample the food. I had mine elsewhere but it was arrive mid morning, no food before the op, ablation in the afternoon then sleep overnight and discharge before breakfast.
