"i went to a&e on a sunday ..."

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (London)

(as the patient),

What I liked

i went to a&e on a sunday morning and within half an hour saw a nurse then had a blood test and xray all within 2 hours. within 30 minutes i saw a doctor who was lovely they diagnosed an acute chest infection but had also found a problem with my heart and was arranging a scan of my heart.The doctor was really great and explained everything and answered all of my questions. But alas three weeks later i have not heard from the hospital about my follow up appointment and have had to ask my doctor to chase it up.This is not the first time this has happened.It seems a great shame i was treated so well in the a&e but the follow up from that department is non existant
