Since my diagnosis last autumn there seems to be an argument over who is paying for blood tests and investigations.
The most recent was a cardiologist who recommended a blood test for heart failure, he said the hospital could not do it and I was to get it done by my GP practice.
When I spoke to the GP about another matter and mentioned this blood test , he was most put out. He is now insisting that the blood forms have to come from the hospital as the surgery is charged for each test.
I think it is unfair to be in the middle of this. My GP is normally very supportive so it looks like he is being instructed by the practice manager. It's no help to me though.
