"Stress Dealing with Warwick Hospital"

About: Warwick Hospital

My heart scan was cancelled at the last minute. When I complained after cancelling my private appointment with a heart surgeon, then they called to say they could do it. Warwick Hospital has had staffing issues with cardiologists and can only do less accurate heart scans at the moment, due to their infection control policies and them not wanting to spend the money on cleaning equipment for probes, despite having the probe and the staff to carry out the procedure. I have told my cardiologist that I do not feel comfortable with being monitored by Warwick Hospital, but I cannot transfer to another hospital. My friends and family are concerned about me being treated at Warwick Hospital, after the many complications I have had, which will lead to more serious heart complications if they do not monitor my condition closely.

I am writing this review to balance out the many euphoric patient reviews which only praise every member of staff they ever interacted with and give the highest praise and express unswerving support for the NHS.
