I am having a few problems with my gps as they would not give me my next prescription without seeing the asthma nurse for an asthma check even though I am a frequent visitor to the gp! Who know me well and my asthma well. I also have a hospital based asthma nurse whom I can see or speak to without any trouble and am in contact with them frequently. I tried to explain this to the receptionist but I am unable to get my script done, so I have to go for an asthma check at the surgery on Monday. I was really just interested if anyone else had this problem and if a gp can demand I have a check with the asthma nurse before allowing me a rpt prescription.. thank you for your time JB.
