Thread: My GP

    My GP

    I've been suffering with a chest infection for a couple of weeks. I suffer from Asthma. This week face to face, appointment with the
    practise nurse and telephone appointment with the G. P.
    To quote Mrs, Brown. "You've heard of Dr Dolittle this is Doctor Do fcuk all".
    Fcuking useless. No service no medication.
    What the **** is going on.

    I also suffer with asthma before covid the surgery would contact me saying that I'm due an assessment. I haven't had a letter for 2 years. Try getting an appointment, the NHS is broken big time

    Welsh Health service has been broken for some years, Welsh Government not that bold to challenge performance and ensure taxpayers get value for money....

    You could stagger into A and E with breathing difficulties.

    Hope your chest gets better soon..

    Original poster sounds exactly the type of person who if he were to ring 999 to request an ambulance would then moan and groan if it didn't show up within the next six hours. (He's probably a Communist agitator.)

    GPs shouldn't be troubled by patients with non life threatening conditions. Instead, they ought to seek advice from a pharmacist. When s/he is unavailable then consult with whoever's operating the till at the time.

    As LoM identified, anyone can attend any number of A & E departments. Whilst it's true one should visit with a pop-up tent, sleeping bag and a carrier bag full of grub in anticipation of a three-day wait prior to being seen, politicians are correct when insisting our National Health Service remains the envy of the world.

    The NHS dentist appears to becoming a thing of the past as well

    Ive just had notice that my current dentist is no longer renewing its contract with the NHS after 18 years.

    They are blaming it on the backlog of patients caused by lockdowns.

    Whilst Im fortunate to be able to pay for treatment, this is going to have a huge effect on the local area in respect of poorer families and especially children whos treatment is free.

    Anybody else having experienced his u-turn with their local practice and is this going to become the norm ?

    Seems part of the plan by the WAG

    Until social care is properly funded and profit making provision removed then you will continue to see a and e departments blocked

    It's not a priority, the Welsh Government has far more important stuff to deal with like slowing the Country down to a grinding halt, with covid and speed and road closures, once it's ground to a halt they will look at the ambulance delays, A&E, GP's and Dentists, problem is you won't be able to get there by the time they get around to it!

    I guess here in the Dordogne we are lucky. Small village...life like uk back in the fifties.....
    Small - very small doctors. No receptionists, no appointments...just walk in to see the doctor......70% paid for by the state and 30% through top up insurance (optional).

    Maybe, after assessment by two healthcare professionals it was decided that medication wouldn't have helped with your condition.

    I can see your point.I've had these symptoms before.It takes 5-6 weeks of hell to recover without extra meds off the quack.Hacking cough tight weezy chest.I bet if the 2 professionals had what I've got they would be writing themselves a script or dipping into the samples they get off the sales reps.

    In the interest of balance, I've had a sore throat/bad chest for weeks, to be fair to my GP he prescribed antibiotics over the phone the first time. Then when I rung a month later to say it hadn't gone away they called back the next day and said come in in 45 mins then gave me an asthma pump and a peak flow test to measure my oxygen levels at home

    Similar to myself. 2 lots of antibiotics didn't shift it. Had both a telephone appointment and face 2 face with the practice nurse. Did a flow test at home and ended up with a nasal spray. That did the trick as it stopped the nasal drip fluid getting to my throat and chest. Was like it all winter.
