"Heart Issues and still waiting for a scan since..."

About: Hammersmith Hospital

My father is in the hospital with Heart issues with a collapsed artery since Tuesday. Today is Friday and no scan has been done. Blood tests shows he is not getting enough blood supply to heart. Echo scan has been promised since tuesday. Seems the UK is a 3rd world country being unable to check a persons heart. Going to go to the hospital now and tape the scan department as apparently they are busy by what the doctors says and an important 15min procedure is so hard to book. Doctor has said he should go home and come and book an appointment for the scan in a few days. Who here thinks this is a smart move? If feedback is not published, I have twitter and the entire web to post this on. ;)
