"Unacceptable wait"

About: Castle Hill Hospital / Radiology

(as a relative),

to investigate whether a one off chest pain was heart related. A clear ECG was carried out followed by radio therapy a few weeks later.

After four and a half weeks no information has been received by G. P. or the patient.

This is an unaccepatable period of time.

This delay is causing anxiety to a patient who is not suffering any obvious symptoms of cardiac problems.

The tests were carried out in a competent and kindly manner by friendly staff.
