Ta. Here is what the NHS tell you;

Driving
If you drive a car or motorcycle and you have a heart attack, you don't have to inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
Many people can now return to driving one week after a heart attack, as long you don't have any other condition or complication that would disqualify you from driving.
However, in more severe cases you may need to stop driving for four weeks. Your doctor or rehabilitation team should advise how long you must wait before driving after your heart attack.
If you drive a large goods vehicle or passenger-carrying vehicle, you must inform the DVLA if you have a heart attack.
Your licence will be temporarily suspended, for a minimum of six weeks, until you've adequately recovered.
Your licence will be reissued if you can pass a basic health and fitness test, and don't have any other condition that would disqualify you from driving.

From; http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Heart-a.../Recovery.aspx

The consultant told me 1 week but I will take 3 or 4 as I don't need to drive anywhere myself.

Saying nothing doesn't mean I have no opinion.
It may mean I don't think you are ready to hear it.
