Does anyone have any tips for dealing with GP receptionists? I've heard others refer to them as dragons, but generally not experienced problems myself - until today.
I saw my GP today following my recent admission and because I'm really not doing too well she said she wanted all stress taken off (my uni are giving me hell at the moment ), other medical issues can also wait, and she just wants to focus on the asthma on a day-to-day basis. I felt more reassured after seeing her, and she said to come back in a week or sooner if needed.
Fine, went to reception to book appointment, and came face to face with the dragon of all dragons who has obviously just finished a BA in Dragon Studies. He would absolutely not let me have an appointment under any circumstances. I was told my GP was fully booked for the next two weeks and the problem would have to wait (! - hope you're listening lungs). I was too breathless to argue and left in tears; I don't feel in control of my asthma and I'm scared.
Any really practical tips to get past dragons like this would be greatly appreciated.
