"Not very much really"

About: Heartlands Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Not very much really

What could be improved

I am currently waiting for Gastric Bypass Surgery at heartlands Hospital, but I have to jump through so many hoops to get this treatment. I have done everything the Hospital of asked of me but I am still waiting.

Anything else?

I have had a Psychological Asessment and I am still waiting after a year. I walk four miles twice a week and I attend the gym three times aweek. For anyone who is wanting Gastric Bypass Surgery at Heartlands I suggest go else where because the weight loss team aren't the best in the country.
