Hi I'm Steve, 58 from Waltham Abbey. A number of years ago I did a try dive while on holiday in El Gouna, Egypt. I was hooked and came back from the holiday planning to do a referral course. Unfortunately i had a heart attack before I could do anything about it. Roll forward 4 years and I started to look into it again. I spoke to London Hyperbaric about a medical and they told me I needed to organise a Bruce Protocol stress test through my doctor. This is where the fun started. The receptionist didn't have a clue what I was talking but referred the question to the head of the practice. A couple of months later I got a letter that basically said you can't go diving you've had a heart attack and that was it. A few weeks ago we were told that our medical practise was closing because of all the complaints about them and we were moved to a new practice so I popped in and asked them about the test. The receptionist again didn't know what I was talking about but a Doc (who was hanging about reception at the time) did. The upshot is I have a consultation booked with him for the 4th April and, fingers crossed, we can go on from there. At least if I get a 'No' this time I will be confident it is from someone who knows what they are talking about.
