I've just been watching Good Morning Britain and there was a really sad story of a little girl who was sent home by her GP because she was a few minutes late to an emergency appointment and she died.
It's ridiculous she was obviously needing to be seen
A couple of weeks ago I went to the GP after going to A&E the night before and wheezing again and all she did was listen and sent me home with a prescription of prednisolone which I took as soon as I got home and by that time I was really wheezy but I just took 10 ventolin so I could give the pred a chance to work but a couple of hours later I needed an ambulance and I was admitted to a ward this time and was there until 16:00 the next day because I kept getting wheezy I had 3 back to back nebulisers and loads of inhaler
But I just felt like the GP should've done more like given me a nebuliser there she said I was only a little wheezy but that wheeze is making struggle and I know for a fact if I saw a different GP I would've got a nebuliser. I didn't say anything at the time because she's the doctor not me but I do know when my body is struggling
Asthma is a serious condition that needs to be taken seriously
A poor girl died because her GP wouldn't treat her because she was a bit late to an EMERGENCY appointment
Sorry I just wonder if any of you have seen this on the news and what your opinion is on this ?
