"No Wonder"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington)

No wonder the Cardiology department has been taken over by Kings, although as an outpatient I have seen little improvement so far.

After a less than courteous initial reception by the cardiologist, the time eventually came round for this year's annual review, due in March, but postponed until May. As May approached it was postponed until October.

Worsening health throughout the summer lead my doctor to ask for it to be brought forward.

The result was an appointment in September. Before this time, however, my health had become so bad that I was forced to seek help outside the NHS, a move that appears to have saved my life.

What do I think of Cardiology at the Princess Royal hospital. Very little.
