"Chest Pain Investigation"

About: William Harvey Hospital

My last review on this line highlighted the fact that I had been waiting for a Echo Cardiogram following my visit to the Cardiologist. I had phone calls from you advising me that it was all in hand and I would receive an appointment shortly. 9 weeks later I am still waiting. The problem is as you decide what is printed those reviews you don't like get cancelled. All this time I am still waiting and still in much pain. What do I have to do to get this appointment?
