Cardiac staff at the Royal Berkshire Hospital were faster than other units in providing rapid life-saving surgery.

Figures showed that 96% of patients under went a primary angioplasty within 150 minutes of calling 999.

"That will maximise their chances of recovering from that and getting back to a normal quality of life."

A primary angioplasty is rapid treatment where the artery is reopened mechanically using a balloon catheter inserted into the blocked artery.

It is the preferred treatment by surgeons if it can be provided promptly
