I have recently had a medical and mostly everything checked out ok except my ECG came up as an abnormality that need to be investigated. The graph/report was sent off to the Cardiologist who advised that a Echocardiogram is needed to further assess the possibility of Obstructive coronary disease and any other underlying issues. At this point I thought fair enough. I now have the option of NHS (6 week wait) or private immediate appointment/report at the cost in the region of £400. I was told by the TOC that if I couldn’t start in July, August and September would be fine. For this reason I was going to go via NHS. Unfortunately this had changed as the vacancies for my depot were over subscribed but my start date in July could be honoured. I’m left with the decision of my application coming to an end if I go via NHS or pay privately for a scan. Naturally I value my future career and paid the fee for a scan which comes back absolutely fine. Whilst there, I took it upon my self to have another ECG as I had thought if i do have this abnormality in the heart as pointed out in my medical, it should still be there. The consultant agreed and performed another ECG which came back “Normal”. Boom it checked out and I’m in good health. The question I have is am I within my right to try and pursue reimbursement of the fee I paid as the original ECG appears to have read wrong and caused this situation? I’m willing to have another ECG with Occu health to rule out a dud reading.
