Imagine you are having a STEMI - a thread in 5 parts...

You call an ambulance, but the police arrive. They handcuff you and bundle you into the back of their van.

You are carted off to an emergency department, where the doctors only have a vague understanding of your disease.
They are unable to prescribe any treatment other than painkillers, and nothing to treat your MI

You are then left in a cubicle without a trolley to lie on for 4 hours until a specialist nurse comes to see you.
They understand your condition, and diagnose it well, but don’t explain to you what is happening.

You wait in the cubicle for another 18hrs for a bed. If you are lucky you might get some food and drink, and if you’re really lucky a trolley.
The specialty doctors never visit, and deny you are even their problem until you get to the ward

On the ward you get the meds you need, and maybe feel a bit better, but before you are well you are discharged. No f’up, no lifestyle advice/support, and are still having chest pain
...but your only option is to start the process again

No imagine that this wasn’t a STEMI, but a mental health crisis
