If you are young, or older, and you feel you are not being listened to, or 'fobbed off' by your GP/Nurse then make a stand! Do not let them feel like you are wasting their time - it is their job to listen and treat you.
If you need to then make a complaint to the practise manager, take in a strong willed adult/family member/friend that will push them until something is sorted for you.
You have the right to be treated and not rushed in your appointment, on average you get ten minutes with your GP and longer with the Nurse, so dont have them push you out the door in 3 minutes.
If it helps write everything down, show them a video diary when you are at your worst, make them listen and help you.
If i live near any of you who feel this way i will happily come stand up for you and get you what you need, i did it for myself and now i have the breath and energy i want to do it for others!
Good luck to all of you, if you need any help with complaint letters or just a general chat on how to talk to your GP just ask me.
