Hi all this might sound a bit silly but wanted to ask about protocol
I have had AF for a for a couple of years now.
Until March/April this year I was on pill in the pocket of flecaninde and bisoprosol.
In march I was on a diet actually fasting for Greek Easter and I was away in Greece where I spend part of the year. When I say fasting generally it was a gluten free vegan diet.
My AF started 1 episode per week approximately and after the fourths week eater Sunday followed by another episode on the Wednesday.
Saw a cardiologist in Greece who suggested 100 flecaninde twice per day and 1.25 mg of bisoprosol once per day.
I wanted to get my EPs opinion in the UK, so I called and emailed his secretary a few times but no response. I do have a follow appointment with him in January 2018 which was set (in Jan 2017) before these events.
My GP said I would be lucky to get a response if I emailed directly.
Is there a protocol to follow what is the best way for me to get in touch, as good as my EP is I think some of them have a god complex and in the end we get lost in the system.(he was much more responsive when I was seeing him privately but that was 120 a pop and I would have thought a simple response via email word have been fine). I guess I could see him privately again but was wondering what the NHS protocol was.
Any advice appreciated
