An angiogram was preformed 14 months ago due too daily angina attacks. It was found 16 years previously that i had heart disease plus 35% closing of my left artery valve wall had closed . I was told then once it reaches 55% it could be life threatening. Being anxious knowing my results i I arrived for my appointment on time and waited to see a consultant 1hr 40min after my appointment time. I was shocked to find the consultant concerned within 10 minutes repeated 3 times he had never seen me hasnt read my notes wasnt sure why i was seeing him. Told me to take my tablets and i would be fine. ( I tried explaining he laughrd an said i would be fine with my tablets. if he read my notes he would find the reasons why i had my angiogram and if he had listened would find out attacks are daily in which i was told 14 months ago a stent would have to be placed in heart valve . I asked this consultant are you avoiding stent due to NHS cut backs he changed subject. After walking out followed by asthma attack and agina attack i received an in post two days later offering appointment to return in September. I am going to follow complaint procedures but not holding out much hope as several years ago i put in a complaint about this cardioligist. I use to work for the NHS and as far as i am concerned they should be repremanded their employed to do a job they trained for they should be made aware , if not up too standards their are plenty of excellent cardioligist out there to take their positions.
