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.
