"Constant change of cardiology consultants"

About: King's Mill Hospital / Cardiology King's Mill Hospital / Respiratory medicine

(as the patient),

I was given an appointment to see a Cardiology Consultant at KMH in November 2012 but when I arrived I was told that the Consultant had resigned a few days before.

I saw the locum who was helpful but could not access my details or results of a previous ECG. He arranged for further tests and agreed to review me in 3 months time. I attended for a review in February 2013 but found that the locum Consultant had left. I saw another who carried out some checks and arranged for a chest x-ray and pulmonary function tests. I was to be reviewed in 3-4 months.

I recently enquired as to when the review would take place but have been told that the previous Consultant was about to leave as well. I have to wait until the replacement has arrived.
