Here we go again, part 2: been rereferred

So I saw my new GP again on Tuesday. He took a scan of a letter from my medical folder to add to his notes on me, then made me appointments for blood test (next week) and lipid clinic. He warned me that I should ask for a copy of my blood test results because the test lab and clinic are at different hospitals, but I'd do that anyway to keep my folder up-to-date.

This morning, the clinic appointment arrived - early February. I've had to look up how to get to the clinic because the hospital is new to me and their directions only talk about cars and buses, which I probably won't be using (train+bike or train+walk for me), but so far so good. Such a change from my old GP/clinic combination!

I just hope the snow has eased by the time I need to go to the GP or clinic for those appointments.

  • All the very best to you and keep us in the loop

  • Good luck hope it gets sorted out as quickly as possible.

  • yes, some GP.s dont deserve there wages. good luck.

  • Taking about wages, I just realised that all this is going to take about 2 days off work in total. Hmph.

  • Did you get the copy od your blood test results? How do the results compare now days?

  • Yes, I get copies of everything now. I'm very happy with this GP.

    My headline test results then were TC 4.7mmol/l with LDL 3.0 but I've been on a roller-coaster of statin side-effects since then and my last headlines were TC 6.9 with LDL 5.3. Next test next week, next lipid clinic start of November.
