First user of Navex machine

Testimonial From: First user of Navex machine

I wish to say a huge "thank you" to all who have supported SCHF and made possible the purchase of the Navex machine for JCUH.

Since birth I have suffered from heart disease and when 8 years old was one of the first children in the country to undergo a hole-in-the-heart operation plus the repair of torn valves. At that time the only hospital carrying out the procedure was Hammersmith. This entailed numerous long journeys, causing great financial and emotional trauma to my parents. Having this machine in the local community will mean so much to patients and their families who will have easier access to the best treatment available.

On Thursday 16th Feb (2006) I was fortunate to receive treatment from Dr. Murray, using the machine. It was a lengthy procedure lasting 4 hours and required great skill from the consultant. Due to the cutting edge technology of the Navex the process was greatly aided.

It is impossible to put into words the gratitude felt, But once again, "thank you" to all who have given time, finance and commitment to your charity.

Testimonial From: 24th Sept 2013 from Wensleydale patient

I arrived at JCUH having suffered a heart attack.

The care I received from the doctors and nursing staff was second to none. Their calm professional approach was very reassuring and these very special people were there for me in all manner of ways when I needed them.

I enclose my donation with thanks for all of the care and attention I received in the Coronary Care Unit.
