a) I suspect that I am going to have a long-term relationship with my GP about this problem and
b) I would like some explanation about the blood results and how the system works (all these different doctors)
I thought I would ring to make an appointment with my GP.
OK, he is on holiday and no I do not want to talk to anyone else. But why can I not make an appointment for when he gets back!? The system seems to be designed for acute not chronic patients.
Hacked off but resigned to ringing at 0800 on the morning he gets back from jollidays.
