I was referred to Nuclear Medicine at Derriford by my GP for some tests on my heart. I was given an appointment originally at the Cumberland centre and the GP I saw there referred me on to Nuclear Medicine. Everything went really well until after I had had the tests. I was told that the results would be with me within 2 weeks. I received no results and having waited over 3 weeks I rang the Cumberland Centre and was told the results were with them but it would take 2 more weeks before they could be typed up and sent to my GP. I waited another 3 weeks and then rang my GP who still had not received the results but chased it and eventually I had the results. The appointment service and the carrying out of tests were excellent but waiting so long for results.
