"Frustration,I want an end to hospital..."

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

What I liked

Prompt appt time.

What could be improved

A full physical examination,Ithink doctor had made up his mind about me based on previous tests.

Anything else?

My gp knew what was wrong with me 6 months ago,I am much weaker now,but based on one negative BNP blood test it seems I am not taken seriously.

I know my own body,and would not wish my cardiac symptoms on anyone.

I suppose I am one patient who has slipped through the net.

I am sure the consultants get it right 99% of the time.

This is not a personal attack on this doctor,as a neurologist I did not realise he would have detailed knowledge of cardiology.

A full physical would confirm what I have without any further tests.

I think I have cost the nhs enough already.
