back about long term conditions or their complications. Tried to stop medication which was dangerous to do, I had to get in touch with my consultant for them to contact them to prevent it. Can’t get appointments and when you do you’re rushed and not listened too. Completely pointless so I’ve been going straight to my consultants recently rather than them, even when consultants have wrote requesting meds to be prescribed they refuse.
could never be contacted for an appointment between 8.00- 9.30 am . Always engaged. Finally when you manage to get through , it is always the case there aren't any appointments available for the day. Staff directs you to the Walk in centre in the town centre. I am just fed with this practise.
On another occasion I had to wait six months for a blood test on advise of the doctor. The reason given by the surgery for the delay was the nurse who was handling the matter was on holiday.!
I hardly go to see the doctor. But when I need to see a doctor ,there is no one there to help you.
As a tax payer, it is sad to see this state of affair. Is this what we have achieved with all the work we put in and pay taxes ?
