Recently I was diagnosed with Behçet's at the Birmingham CoE. I went to see my GP, who diagnosed me with CFS 14 years ago, for a chat about it, and was very surprised when he said ' I am prepared to accept a diagnosis of PROBABLE Behçet's'. Since then, I have read of several GPs not accepting a Behçet's diagnosis at all! What is going on here? What is the point of a GP referral system if the GP subsequently modifies or denies the specialists' diagnosis?
