for up to an hour only to be told try again next week for an appointment.
My husband suffered anaphalactic shock on August 15th and was hospitalized. He has seen 3 doctors since, requesting, pleading and now demanding to see an allergist. He now has a text saying he is on an 8 week waiting list to see a Leeds consultant, 21 weeks after his hospital admission where he nearly died.
called an ambulance out on me, and they were faster, more helpful than anything I’ve experienced at this surgery. Totally disgusting customer service; defensive and uncooperative.
The doctor was insolent, surly, and snappy. Gave me a lecture - before examining me - on the fact the current flu is taking three weeks to leave your body. Then realised I had bacterial lung infection after examination. Very unpleasant. I’d already planned to leave the surgery but this was the final straw.
back ache, and raised blood pressure. Symptoms of pneumonia. NHS Direct called out an ambulance as they were so concerned. I refused to go to hospital but agreed to see GP. Ambulance crew said GP should give an appointment as they had been called. I rang the GP at 08:04 the day after, no appointments until next week. When I'm probably dead. Thanks a bunch, you group of money grabbing losers.
I wouldn't be so agitated if it weren't for the fact that this is the third time I've needed - not wanted - to see a GP, and been unable to get in. I've only been with them a year, and every time they're too busy. They're a disgrace, and the reception staff are blunt to the point of rudeness. Time to get a new GP! Good old Richard Branson hashing up the health service now.
