"follow up appointment"

About: Derriford Hospital

After suffering a massive heart attack a year ago today and having to be shocked back and stent fitted I am yet again frustrated at the fact that my six wk appointment Is still non existent after a year of having a lot of problems. And even worse am still waiting months for appointment withdraw pobereskin for my back so am now mostly bedridden and in constant pain with my back getting worse by the day. How long before your delays put me permanently in a wheel chair. And on top of that being told my breaking down in tears due to sheer frustration will just stop any doctor listening and taking me seriously. Come on guys what's happened to actually caring about your patients.
