Does anyone know how long the wait is for fitting ICD. I suffered heart attack on 2nd Sept 15 and was informed after tests that the only thing they could do to help was to fit ICD.
The hospital in my arrear does not fit ICDs so my request was forwarded to another health authority and marked as urgent.
I have been informed that it will not be getting fitted until August 2016 this is 11 months later.
Is this usual for a case that is marked as urgent.
i am 52 years old and now unable to walk to the end of the road without needing to rest and having to take a handful of meds for breakfast and throughout the day.
