    Results Of Medical Investigations Should Be Communicated To Patients Directly

    it makes sense - irrespective of whether the outcome of tests conducted in a hospital setting be normal or abnormal - in order to minimise patient anxiety arising from avoidable delay in waiting to
    see the GP responsible for their referral.

    It's common sense to advise accordingly

    It IS, in fact, yours truly who's undergoing tests for [suspected] angina ... using the latest, state of the art myocardial perfusion scanners at Perth Royal Infirmary's Nuclear Medicine Unit in the process ... !

    Oh yes, of course ... you would do, with being in the Philippines. All the BEST for when you manage to have that done.

    ... y' know, even at times like these, things can be said to enable us to see the funny side of the situation. Such as what happened following my treadmill ordeal last Monday.

    Because of my hearing difficulties, Myrna was allowed to attend the appointment. Consequently, she'd been present while the consultant was summing up her findings. "Hmm ... looks pretty much like you've angina", the cardiologist concluded.

    However, once back home, Myrna told me she thought the doctor had said, "looks like you've [a] vagina!"
