Ive noticed a few people asking about these. well don't leave it. I went to my doctors on Thursday for an emergency appointment and asked generally about when I should book my flu jab I am severe stage COPD and also have recently had a large lump removed from my lung so should Im told be on the priority list.
No chance they say all appointments have been booked till mid November and even then they cant guarantee I will get into one of the those at the end of November.
I tried to explain and was told they no longer prioritise patients and it is up to you to book and appointment. Basically its my problem no theirs. We were taken over by a private company last year and things are definitely on the downward spiral.
I am in the lucky position of having a family who are happy to pay for me to have it done privately but what if I wasn't. It doesn't bear thinking about.
Anyway please everyone who needs one phone your doctors sooner rather than later I would hate anyone to be in the tis position.
Happy days everyone
