I have just seen the respiratory nurse at my (Welsh) GP practice who refused to assess me for AOT on the grounds that 1. My blood gases were OK, 2. I didn't finish the 6mwt and desaturated too quickly 3. She has to follow British Thoracic Society guidelines, which are admittedly ambiguous. She criticised my using my scooter, no consultant ever has, but when I also told her that respiratory physician had advised PR she said she had to check with cardiologist to make sure I was well enough to do it. It seems I can't do right whatever I do. Despite the fact that I have received a pamphlet from the Gloucestershire CCG the Welsh Health board don't seem to have disseminated the information to doctors. I am currently waiting to hear back from the CCG having left a message, also I shall contact the consultants and see what they have to say. I also intend to contact the practice manager about all this. The daftest aspect of all is that Bristol is the centre for people like me for the whole of South Wales. NHS what's that?
