"Cardio Outpatient Dept"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

I had a serious heart condition in May last year when visiting my daughter in Leigh Lancs. I was rushed to Wigan Hospital where I couldn't praise enough the way I was treated with speed and officiancy. Since arriving back home on the Wirral my treatment was transfered to Arrowe Park Hospital where they have done nothing for me upto now leaving me disappointed and frustrated. My first appointment was made for the above dept for last December, which was cancelled to March this year, this was cancelled to April, this was cancelled to May then this morning I received another cancellation to June. When phoning them this morning to ask why I am receiving all these cancellations the answer was because The consultant and his registrars are away on their holidays and they where obliged only to give you six weeks notice!
