Hi there I have just moved to Essex after leaving surrey, I am on HRT and was told I needed a review of the medication, I was happy for this as I'm not really happy with my medication. I attended the appointment to have my blood pressure taken and then given a prescription. I told the GP I wasn't happy with the medication and he just told me there was nothing he could do as I was on the highest dose. I still work in surrey and drive there daily for work. My question is could I register with a surgery where I work as I can't take time off to have an appointments and the odd time I can get back into Essex when the drs are open, I can't get an appointment. I had to wait 6 weeks to register with this place and then a further 5 weeks to have this pointless appointment. I feel very low at the moment and have had some serious points of depression in my life and am scared that I can't get the help I need when I need it. It is very difficult moving to a new place and without the support of a decent doctor is leaving me feeling very worried. I am not a sick person and don't attend the doctors unless there is a real problem, however with the move and the commute and now finally meeting my gp it has really left me feeling scared. Sorry for the long drawn out message but I really want to go back to my old gp who helped me through some very traumatic times in my life, is this a possibility? Thank you. X
