I have a private appointment next Wednesday with an EP at his private clinic. He also works at the Cardiology unit at the hospital where I have my first NHS appointment at the end of September. Can someone tell me (as I am becoming rather anxious about it), how do folks transfer from their first private appointment with an EP to continue treatment on the NHS? When I asked if I could have a Doctor's referral for the private appointment, he said he had already referred me....hence the NHS appointment in September. The surgery are, rather, printing my AF history for me to take to the private appointment. Do you think I should cancel the private appointment...since I will meet the guy at some point when I go to the Cardiology unit in the NHS hospital 5 weeks later?
