What could be improved

I had various tests to check my heart, including an MRI at Mount Vernon. This was in Sept. The Cardiology department has continued to move my appt more than 3 times and I am still waiting for my results.

I am now "supposed" to be seen at the end of Jan 2010, but my confidence in the NHS has seriously diminished.. I'm sure they have no intention to keep this appt and continue to bump me due to "unforseen circumstances" - which, without sounding hard - isnt my problem.

I've tried to go private, but the consultant discourages people from doing that..

I'm hoping my condition isn't life threatening..either way it would be nice to finally get some answers.

Anything else?

I'm disgusted. I've been failed by the NHS.
