I had a review at the start of this month. A week later, I tried to renew a prescription online and the form wouldn't let me, stating that I need a review. I went to the health centre and the receptionist didn't speak great English, so I think she just assumed I couldn't use the online system. She told me to go back the next day to collect the prescription and that she would sort it then. When I collected the prescription, it still said that I never a review. Another receptionist told me it would be updated the next day. On Monday I tried to renew the prescription for my other inhaler and it still won't let me. When I spoke to them they said there's nothing they can do and I'd have to have another review. I tried to make an appointment with the nurse but there isn't one for 3 weeks, by which time I will have moved back home from uni. There are no appointments with the doctors for 2 weeks. I plan on moving home next Friday but my inhaler runs out on Friday. Given that when I register back home I won't be allowed prescriptions until I've seen a doctor, I could be without a preventer for 3 weeks whist having hay fever.
I'm really not sure what to do. The reception staff have decided it's non urgent so won't let me see a doctor. I've tried to explain that I don't need a review, it just needs someone to tick the box saying that I've had one but the staff ignore that. Likewise when I asked if I could just have a phone appointment they said not because it's a review. Feels like I'm going around in circles!
