Please i could do with some advice. For reasons i wont go into I changed my gp and where i am now are excellent so i thought. I had a new patient exam all sorts of blood test everything OK. My inr was a bit unsettled so they have done it every 3 days its not settled at 2.4 good next test in 7days. So i then asked if i could carry on doing my own tests and ring in with results and the nurse said she don't think i can as the strips are too expensive too give on prescription.When i was looking for new gp i ask if they would be happy for me to self test they said yes now i feel they are changing their minds. I struggled to buy the coaguchek but i done it. Nurse said they don't now if my machine is collaborated . I just don't know what to do next. Does anybody know if i could maybe have strips prescription off arrhythmia nurse or even cardiologist. My inr can be very unstable for no reason that was why i bought my own machine. I am sorry to babble on I have no one else. I always read but have never written before. I just needed to talk to someone. Thank you very much for listening
