Treliske Promises Cardiology Inquiry
12:35pm 5th October 2013
Pirate FM has been told that there will be an independent inquiry into some areas of cardiology at Cornwall's biggest hospital.
It is over the consultant being investigated after concerns were raised during routine checks and also a backlog of nearly 300 hundred patients waiting for appointments.
Truro and Falmouth MP Sarah Newton says she has had a promise from bosses after a meeting at Treliske: "Having had this meeting and gone through plans that the trust have and how they're tackling the situation, that backlog, I've been assured, will be cleared by the end of November and it has been prioritised so if people need to be seen sooner, they will be seen sooner.
"I'm pleased that they've identified the problem, I'm pleased that they've taken action about it and that patients will be seen and they will be treated."
