"cardiology referral time"

About: Peterborough City Hospital

I saw a cardiologist just over a week ago who refereed me to Papworth for a MRI scan I find out today that its not yet been sent and was told that it could be up to another week before it is sent. Add that to Papworths 13 week wait time and thats 15 weeks.I don't find this delay at all acceptable - we are dealing with hearts, not big toes.
