After having a moan a while ago about my named GP( a partner) in my change of doctors; faith has been restored. There is a lovely junior who does a fab consultation but unfortunately has to have all prescriptions signed off by my not so lovely GP so I try to see the lady who is good too, however I decided to see the other partner in the practice and how well I've been treated! I took some sputum as advised on here ; he checked out the usual stuff then gave me a prescription and told me to bring fresh sputum in the morn to be sent to the lab. 2 days later he phoned me and said I had to change anti-biotics immediately and that he was sending my prescription to my chemist and could I get it now (Friday night) He then phoned Monday to check I had my new anti biotics and was ok. As I felt the other partner wasn't taking my condition seriously that really restored my faith in changing to them ( We were culled by our previous doctors of 40+ years as we were out of the area now. ) Its difficult when you change doctors and the new practice doesn't know your history.
