A Guernsey grandfather who has waited four months for a heart scan fears he may die before he sees a specialist.
Tony Hobbs is currently one of 77 patients in Guernsey waiting for a CT scan because of unexpected staff shortages at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
The 81-year-old was diagnosed with a blocked artery and a leaky valve in November.
Mr Hobbs believes there should be a back-up plan in place to make sure situations like this don't happen.
Guernsey's Health and Social Care department have apologised, saying that ensuring there is enough staff 'resilience' is a challenge for such a small island.
