"Lack of coomunication at Diana PoW"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I have just attended Diana PoW hospital for a Myoview scan only to find that, in my opinion, the hospital is operating a weight discrimination policy. To travel from Goole to Grimsby plus a day off work for my wife and find the time and money wasted because medical staff were unable to fill in a form correctly is annoying to say the least. What makes matters worse is that I have seen the specialist twice in the last couple of months and at no time was my weight mentioned as being an issue.

I have no idea why this policy exists but I suspect money is at the root of it.

I have 3 options:

1)Lose weight, desirable but not easy when you have mobility issues like me.

2)Forget about the procedure.

3)Just expire quietly .

Options 2 & 3 would be the most economical for the hospital, option 1 may well turn into option 3 due to the time required to lose the necessary weight.
