My husband ,newly diagnosed with A.F. and in receipt of letter from G.P. offering flu jab, went to have this this morning with the practice nurse. She said " I don't know why you need this. It's not as if A.F. is serious. Nearly everyone over the age of 60 has it". My husband replied that the doctor had obviously thought it was serious enough to send a flu jab letter and also to say he was very sorry he had developed this. She then said " oh maybe things have changed lately, I've been away for a while " Shame she was so free with her opinions then. It was a good job I was at home as I'm still thinking of juicy phrases I could have used on her! Me thinks she needs some in service training. X
