I went to the walk in centre today because I was silly and forgot to do my repeat. I have everything except Singulair. Since I've just come off citalopram and I'm suffering with dizzy spells I didn't want any more withdrawal effects over the weekend. I sat for an hour, which I fully expected after all I'm just dosey and not actually ill. Listened to the paramedic, the one that goes around on a bicycle who must have been waiting for a job, and the receptionists taking the mick out of each other and saying some quite derogitory things about one of their colleagues.
They also refused to see someone who wanted a salbutamol inhaler and sound quite breathless! I thought that was really bad and wanted to shout out to her that she could go to the pharmacy and they'd probably be able to give her one. Not sure why they let me wait when I wasn't breathless and needed different medication that's not as needed as a reliever.
Once I got in there the nurse refused to prescribe as they don't do repeat prescriptions. I explained that I have grass pollen allergy and what medication I take for my asthma and how it keeps it controlled but she says she can only give me five days and I have to wait 30 mins at least for the repeat. I told her I couldn't because I had a train to catch and she was a bit grumpy with me.
They were also telling people who weren't UK residents that it was Â£33 for a ten minute consultation! Its a private company who run the walk in centre you see.
So still got no singulair but hopefully will be ok, I can always up my symbicort.
