Had 3 x cardiac infarction 2 years ago . Fortunately called 999 and they did angioplasty which am very grateful for . If had been a weekend may not have been so speedy ? What bothers me is that the Surgery and DLA disregarded specialist direction regarding ischemic signalling, stroke and mobility symptons TREADMILL TEST which had done privately for DLA MOBILITY showing collapse 3/4 x in 6 min and recommending an echodoppler . Also CFS / fibromyalgia was also diagnosed privately when left without monitoring and medication by rotated surgery .

The Health Authority have been rotating me because live on boundary and blaming me for their misdiagnosis caused by their structure and statistical direction of GPs who they direct based on statistics using contracts . When its an LA based on the corporate & funding those who need the help the most eg: elderly - disabled those with chronic conditions are neglected.

If you have chronic problems in UK you are blamed ??!! GPs need to take control and direct the system and those bought in by accountants .Otherwise our safety is at risk.
