After over 10 years, I have changed GP. I was diagnosed with COPD about 18 months ago. My new GP has found that I am not, in fact, on COPD meds but meds for asthma. One anti allergen I was on should be taken in the evening - I was told morning. I am now booked in to have a full MOT!! I have blood tests, spiro and a reversibility test Thurs and Fri with a view to fine tuning CORRECT medication. I feel so relieved as I was getting terribly depressed at the fact my old surgery left me to get on with it alone and when I came out of hospital at Easter after Pneumonia, I had to contact the GP with a million questions and he just booked me in with the nurse there who, when I asked if anyone at the surgery knew about COPD, told me "well **** has been on a two day course so she knows more than me" - that clinched it and I changed to a larger practice where I am not made to feel like a nuisance and where I am receiving proper treatment. I'm astonished that my case is by no means unusual. I highly recommend changing if you too are being treated badly.
