A Wexford woman has lodged an official complaint with the HSE after being told that she would have to wait 15 months to explore a worrying heart issue. The woman and her husband, who wish to remain anonymous, feel that a lack of available cardiac services in Wexford and lengthy waiting lists could result in fatal consequences for those who are unable to afford private healthcare.

Despite being an active and healthy 60 year-old, the woman began to feel strange some five weeks ago now.
