I want to thank you all for your helpful replies. As it happens, I posted my message at just the right time as I actually have an appointment with the GP tomorrow, so I can go armed with all your advice. One thing I’d like to say is that my surgery does not have a nebuliser and if you need to use one, you have to get to the hospital 45 minutes away - you could be dead by the time you get there!! I’ve been admitted to A&E 3 times, and the last time, when I was sent by the paramedics by car with a friend driving me (as the wait for an ambulance was estimated at 2 hours), the wait in A&E to be seen by a doctor was 7.5 hours! I kid you not 🙁. While I was there, I was sitting next to a woman who was in a more desperate state than me and she told me that she had purchased a nebuliser on the internet but that the GP’s in our area won’t prescribe the meds for home nebulisers so she had to get to the hospital too. I think they’re trying to kill us off 🤣 I’ll let you know how the appointment goes that’s IF I actually get to see her. They’re rather fond of just doing triage on the phone and then sending a prescription to the local chemist…. X
Re: cough cough cough: I want to thank... - Lung Conditions C...
I got mine through the hospital after when last in. But did buy one on ebay and arranged for saline products through gp. Good luck.
Think you are right, they are trying to kill us off. Good luck for today x
My best wishes for getting through this. Grace
I hope things improve for you. Lungies are being very badly treated in your area.
Someone else coined the term lungies before I joined the site. xxx
