referral

i keep getting different answers off hospital and doctors secretarys

As i only have a cardiologist at my hospital i want a referral to see an electrophysiologist at another hospital

The problem is i have ad different replies , i have been told that my cardiologist would have to refer me on but then i was told by the hospital secretary that my GP would have to refer me

I just keep getting passed about , does anybody know how this all works please its doing my head in

Thank You

Look up the list on the main website for EPs and find one in your area. Then go doorstep your GP and demand your right to see who you want.

Oh Steve your last comment made me feel sad! Not everyone finds it easy to be assertive in such situations, but I hope you can do it! Good luck!

Good luck Steve. With this complaint you do have to learn to be assertive, even though it is difficult
