Update re mistake on notes etc

sam295 profile image

I was at GP today who wants to me antidepressants. bear in mind my cardiologist wont see me until the 21st June , I keep collapsing after having a pacemaker fitted I am just being told go to A&E. My notes say I have had a quadruple bypass which is obviously a mistake , I have had a pacemaker fitted. And I might lose my job. My Gp thinks I should go private as it will give me back some control.

How do you feel about the antidepressants? How come you may lose your job.

Do you think you will be able to access heathcare privately?

You seem to have a lot on at the moment, hope you are ok x

Go to A&E if you collapse again. Clearly, something isn't right. By all means go privately, but try to make that appointment with the cardiologist you were seeing at the time of the implant - it just saves a lot of time if they know you. Typically that initial appointment will be around £180 but it can vary consultant to consultant. Seeing a consultant privately does not obligate you to go privately from there on.

Thanks for you support, anything is a help right now
