my husband has been diagnosed with COPD and heart failure. After many trips into hospital in the last 2 years was found to have a small leak in heart oweing to an operation 20 years for a hole in heart. Has just spent 4 weeks in hospital, including Christmas and they found the leak in heart when he was sent to Frenchay. He was relieved that something was being done and quite hopeful. Has been discharged over a week now and all the problems still exist, but has received an appointment for referral about his heart in July. As he is 70 and struggling for breath every day . How can this be in this day and age.
