"Don't involve PALS"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital / Cardiology

After being told I had to wait 13 months for test results PALS were able to get an appointment in a couple of weeks (how is that possible?).

However the doctor I saw was so angry that I had gone to PALS they treated me appallingly.

Did not listen to symptoms and refused any advice.

Whatever you do avoid cardiology at Stoke and don't involve PALS if you want treatment.
