"no appointment 3 months after AF and heart scan !"

About: Westmorland General Hospital

I suffered an Atriam Fribulation in June 2014 and was admitted to RLI for a few days untll it settled down. The staff and service at RLI were excellent. However, shortly after my admision I was given a heart Scan and told I would be invited to se a consultants soon at Westmorland General Hospital near where I live. It has now been 3 months since the scan and no appointment has been offered despite me calling the department a number of times. Poor follow up service!
