Heart attack survival rates praised

16th July 2007

Figures have shown a improvement in the number of heart attack patients in England and Wales who receive clot-destroying thrombolytic treatment within 1 hour.

64% of heart attack patients received treatment within 60 minutes, in comparison to 58% in 2005/6. In Wales there was an 11% rise on the 2005/6 figure of 30% of patients who received treatment.

MINAP (the Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project), released the report and stated that the improvement was "a remarkable achievement by the NHS."
