ombudsman for NHS
I have atrial fibulation, and have had drugs, ( ended up in intensive care) 2 bouts of electrical treatment, and 2 ablations (the last one not very pleasant). Nothing appears to have worked, andI have been in hospital ten times since June 2010. Is there ombudsman I can approach as regards having a 'proper' operation?

Are you under a consultant, queenio? You need to go back if so. Is there an operation for atrial fibrillation? - I'm not aware of one if you've already had ablations. There certainly is an NHS Ombudsman, but you have to go through the Complaints process first - either make a formal complain to your GP or to the Hospital where you were treated, that has to be fully investigated - only then if your complaint is not resolved, does it get referred to the Ombudsman. http://www.ombudsman....t-complained-directly
