"poor service"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital / Cardiology

I had a CT angiogram on 2 June and I am still waiting for the results or a follow up appointment. I have telephoned several times but it is always an answerphone and even if you leave a message nobody calls you back. I feel this is a very poor service as I am sure all worry is not doing my health any good.
