I spent most of the day on the phone talking with my nurse, her boss, the consultant, the health authority and the supplier. Having rattled a few cages and simply pointed out basic facts about my oxygen needs, finally a portable concentrator is on the way. I was passed from pillar to post but stuck with my objective to gain freedom from the portable cylinders. I have to say that my GP was fantastic in giving advice about cutting the red tape. Wedding here I come.
