Brief Summary:
This study aims to ascertain the lived experiences of 6 patients attending a nurse-led chest pain clinic via an interview, and to understand the demographics of referred patients.

Condition or disease
Chest Pain

Detailed Description:
A qualitative analysis of a nurse-led chest pain clinic will be undertaken to improve understanding of patient experience. Patients who have used this service will be invited to take part in an interview. Patients will be split in to two groups: those reassured and discharged after first attendance, and those who went on to have further diagnostic testing. The aim is to interview three patients from each group to compare experiences and perceptions of a service which previously would have been undertaken by physicians, but is now completely nurse-led.
