"The GP was concerned and TRAQS failed to contact me"
Posted by Banjo646 (as ),
Consultant Endocrinologist discovered very low heart rate and heart beat pauses (2. 7 seconds) on 72 hour monitoring. He wrote to my GP recommending urgent referral to a Consultant Cardiologist. GP spoke to the registrar cardiologist, who suggested I be sent on same day to Princess Royal Hospital. at MAU, I did not see a cardiologist but a general doctor suggested that if my case worsened, action should be taken- a further 24 hour monitoring exercise was arranged for 3 weeks time. The GP was concerned and referred me for a consultants appointment through TRAQS. TRAQS failed to contact me and after 11 days from seeing my GP, a telephone enquiry revealed that an appointment was to be arranged after a further 39 days. I am now having to seek further advice from my GP.
