Advise Please. My son had his medical recently and the Dr passed everything else but wanted to 'check' about his chest as he has Pectus Excavatum and couldn't remember 'of the top of his head' wether it was a pass with PE. We weren't overly concerned as on this forum and the RM one there have been plenty of queries regarding PE with good outcomes. While my son was still in the surgery the Dr emailed for advise and that has since come back that they want 3 tests done ECG, Echo cardiogram and chest xray just to check for any problems and we should organise this through our GP. GP has contacted us today to say this is unavailable on the NHS as he is symptom free, no problems with exercise tolerance and has never needed to see a Dr about it before. So unecessary! So we are looking at 3 tests to be paid for privately. Has anyone had any experience with this my son is a student and with a quote of approx 800 pounds PLUS a cardiac consultation appt with a private cardiologist this is pricey stuff! He is symptom free, no restrictions and as far as we are aware its cosmetic only. Can we have any help with costs? Our GP thought we could recover some of the costs from Capita? And have the rules changed recently regarding PE?
