Hi, I am relatively newly diagnosed. i went to a walk-in centre on Easter Sunday and was put on a nebuliser, prescribed steroids and antibiotics. Today, Tuesday, I rang my surgery and cannot get an appointment with a nurse or GP this week. I am back at work next week and in a very difficult employment market where jobs are being shedded by the hundred and so dare not take time off work.
I had rung Asthma UK and found the nurse very helpful, knowledgeable and patient but she did advise me to make an appointment at my usual surgery fairly soon and explained why this is important.
Should I have been more insistent on an appointment or is this the norm?
Thank you for reading, any response gratefully received,
