I saw my Consultant on Thursday he said that sadly this is now the policy of all surgeries , but it’s not good for anyone with respiratory conditions.
He has given me a new prescription for an antibiotic I’ve never had before:- Levoflixacin 14 days & a back up of Co-amoxiclav 14 days if I can’t tolerate Levoflixacin.
He’s told me to contact his Secretary when I need a new rescue pack bless him.
Wishing everyone & your families a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS & a HAPPY HEALTHY 2023. 🎅🎄🎁🥰 Sue xx
Thanks for your update, Souielouie.
Gosh, I presume that is an edict from on high in the NHS, one assumes a cost-cutting exercise, perhaps also part of this move against antibiotics being over-prescribed.
Hopefully it will be possible to be able to fast-track a prescription given that the alternative is a real risk of a much more damaging and financially costly infection potentially leading to hospital admission, and a decline in a lung condition. 🙄🤷♀️
