Good for you Dave, l think many of out GP's need reminding not to neglect our needs and treatments.

Well done on taking the plunge and telling him how you feel.

Good for you Dave. Most of the time we just accept what we are told/given without question. PR is great. You will benefit by going.

Good news Dave - it just annoys me that if we don't ask or push for something we don't get it. Well done.
