Anything else?

I visited Cardiology in Oct 2012 and was told I needed 2 tests and a further review in Jan 2013. I had my tests quite quickly and I was impressed. I received my letter asking to ring to book an appt in Jan 2013 only to be told there were none available and I would be put on a waiting list. I ring every couple of months only to be told Im still on list. My GP rang for my Cardiology results - it took over a week for them to get through to a person only to be told they have no record of me having tests and it might be because they have changed their computer system. I thought no news was good news regarding my tests and now Im worried all over again. Its a year since I first attended next week and Im no further forward.
