Having had to change gp, been left the area for 4years, On my oxygen ass Thursday ,needed to give my new address, so told had to change, I had been there for 30 years, and all was good from doctors to receptionists, so rang my local surgery, pressed 4 on the phone for all other inquires waited 6 minutes then was cut off tried, press 2 for nurse appointment waited 4 minutes, receptionist answered, said I new I had come through to wrong no so said I had waited 6 minutes and got cut off, and I needed to register, she said we have 1700 patients and didn't I know it was Monday morning, So then I asked if any docs specialised in respiratory problems, answer was they are all general but the best would be Dr...... but he only worked 2 days a week, and as it was a teaching surgery they all change. I had never heard of a teaching/ training surgery, along with short receptionist, I have tried another practice , but they say I am out of the area, oh dear........ Didn't I just find out it was Monday morning!!
