We have just returned from a short holiday in Dorset, where I found the short slope up to our rented cottage made me so out of breath that I couldn't cope, and the farmer opened the yard gate so we could drive right to the door. It made me realise I really must press for the ambulatory oxygen assessment which I have heard no more about, so I contacted my consultant's secretary only to find there were three outstanding letters from appointments in February and contacts in March! She emailed them to me and I discovered a letter which should have gone to my GP asking him to sort out the assessment with the nurse from the Welsh NHS . This was written in May! Anyway I am seeing him next week and now have ammunition to press for assessment as the consultant obviously wants me to have oxygen to improve my quality of life. The secretary still can't spell, and is obviously very disorganised but at least when I asked I got the letters, why should I keep having to chase things up though? Hope things improve.
