Treatment delay cannot be right

It cannot be right that having a heart problem, I have to wait eight months to see a cardiologist, and who knows, there is no guarantee that it will not be delayed again nearer the time. Something really does need to be done.

I was referred to a cardiologist in early February, my first appointment came through on June 26, 2012. We thought this was a long wait.

Now they have put the appointment back to September 18, 2012.

It seems incredible to have to wait eight months to see a specialist when you have a problem with your heart, it is after all a vital organ.
