I would like to high lite how the procedure of after care should be done in my view.
You have your procdures, then a check out meeting from the hospitol say 4 weeks
later or so.They then release you from there care and after that you are in the the hands
of your gps, and need a referal before you can be seen at out patients clinic.
In my view surely they should give some mandatory check after a year or so.Evan a car gets an mot each year so why not people.I had stents done, so surely they would want to see if theres any changes to arterys etc.This would seem logical.Then if theres any problems they could deal with them.But in my experience they dont want to know the outcomes of there work.They just wait till you have a problem then act then.Its just my view but surely this would be the best way to reassure patients and check on there work and improve the service.Hopefully some may agree.Please say if you think I am wrong.
