Well, I've made the appointment to see EP privately. It will be next Tuesday. What surprises me is that when I spoke to the secretary on the phone, she asked if I had a referral letter from my cardiologist or GP. A referral is still required even if you are doing it privately! So, I've had to arrange for a duty doctor at my surgery to refer me, my own GP is away on holiday til the 21st. All being done in a bit of a panic. I thought that as I am paying to see the EP, I could just make arrangements...obviously not, it doesnt work like that. Anyone else experienced this?
