"24hr Cardio Monitor"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

(as the patient),

I went for a cardio 24 monitor. I had to take a day off work unpaid. When I got there before I was hooked up, I was told that I had to return within 24 hours as it had already been booked. So I didn’t have the monitor for 24hours because I worked and because of taking a day off. The monitoring of my average day was somewhat pointless.

In the future regarding the monitor cardio machines it would be useful to clearly express that they would like the machine back within the 24hours, stating the reasons and giving the patient ample time to organise this.
