I am old (very old) and old habits die hard. I don't have the courage to ask the Cardiologist whether he is an EP. I just feel grateful that I am seeing somebody. I don't think there are any at the hospital I attend as it seems to be all heart problems queuing up for their time with the Cardio.
and AF doesn't seem to come top of the list. I got discharged once and I felt I was making a fuss being referred. The next week I was back at another hospital via ambulance with blue lights etc.
I have tried to find the list of names of EPs on the Official AF website, but search though I may, I have not found it. Just a big map with flags on it indicating where in the world they are. My hands are a bit shaky and I seem to land all over the place.
Could anyone please put a link to the EPs list so that I may check if one is available at my not very local hospital. I have a follow up appointment in 7 weeks.
Who would refer me to an EP - my own GP or the Cardio I see?
