  • Sorry to hear your news mate, I'm retired now but after my demob I spent 20 odd years "on the road" so can appreciate loss of licence.

    Is that the reason your were enquiring about cost of private consultation? You should be able to get at least an initial EP appointment very quickly paying for it, then at least you should have some sort of plan to work to, but I would have thought you would be able to see the department who dealt with you before by ringing the consultants secretary.

    Hope your sorted soon,


  • I would get on the phone to your EP who undertook your ablation for advice and support. Also does your hospital have an arrhythmia support nurse if so call them.

    Good luck

  • Have a look at benedon healthcare, a useful safety net if you are faced with a long wait.
