Hi, I’m looking for some advice please.
I was diagnosed with Afib in A&E after a very symptomatic episode just over 5 weeks ago. I know there are long waits everywhere at the moment but I haven’t heard anything from the hospital about the echocardiogram appointment they said I would get and my GP still hasn’t received a letter so I’m guessing it would be best to get this done privately?
Is it best to get the echo done and then make an appointment with an EP or do I make the appointment and let the EP arrange any tests they want? I was hoping to pay for that then ask to be transferred to an NHS wait list. I presume that’s the way to go?
Also, I don’t live too far from Wythenshawe Hospital and Manchester Royal Infirmary. Can anybody recommend an EP in this neck of the woods please?
Any advice greatly received. Thanks all.
