Where would I go if I was having a suspected heart attack?

If you have a cardiac arrest (your heart stops), paramedics would perform emergency resuscitation on you. They would then decide on the best place for you to receive further care and treatment. Some local residents already travel further to receive care provided by specialist clinical teams, for example local patients with serious head injuries and heart attacks already go to St George’s Hospital for treatment. This is because those types of serious illnesses and injuries need highly specialist care that is only provided in a small number of hospitals around the country.
