Aortic valve replacement surgery on 11 Dec 2018 at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. Mr Bittar and all his team were brilliant, everything was clearly explained at each stage and Mr Bittar came round every day to monitor my progress. It was very noticeable how much the team respected him and enjoyed working with him. Family and friends have commented how much better I am since the operation and I have Mr Bittar to thank for that, which I do wholeheartedly. O h I mustn't forget secretary Anne, what a treasure she is, thanks Anne.
