"It wasn't clear when I had to return the heart monitor"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was referred by my GP for a 24 hour heart trace monitor to be fitted. The appointment arrived in reasonable time. On the day I was seen within a reasonable time of my appointment.

My only complaint is that it was not made clear in the appointment letters that the monitor would have to be returned to the hospital early the next morning.

I did manage to do this with a little juggling of pre arranged things but it would have been better to know about this need for the monitor before accepting the appointment.
