I'm quick to have a moan when things aren't right, but I'm here to say that I think my GP is one of the best!
I'm really speaking of her lovely manner, her approachability, her open-mindedness and willingness to take appropriate action immediately when required.
So, following my phone appointment with her yesterday, she has written to my Resp Consultant re prescribing Azithromycin, now that it's been sanctioned by the Cardiologist; changed my repeat prescription to include a lesser quantity of Doxycycline (won't need so many if the Azithromycin script comes through), added Famotidine to take alongside my Lansoprazole (as the Gaviscon is playing havoc with my medication regime), added a new 'prescription only' antihistamine to replace one I've been taking for years and is no longer effective; discussed my ENT appointment, subsequent discharge and referral instead to neurology and come out in full support of my booking a private appointment as the waiting list is over 12 months! We also discussed my appointment with the nutritionist which she had arranged. Every change made was with the caveat, 'If you don't think it's suiting you, come back to me straight away and we'll try soething
She really is a breath of fresh air. She never rushes me and is always willing to listen to any concerns or discuss any thoughts I have about improving my health. If she agrees with me, she will action it, and if she doesn't agree she will explain why. For the first time in my life, I feel I have a completely equal partnership with my GP and that I know many other people are lacking.
I'm not going to tell you which surgery she's at as you'll all be queueing up to get put on her list! 🤣🤣🤣
I just thought I would let you know that there are some good GPs out there. I sincerely hope mine never leaves or gets burnt out.
