What about contacting your MP to let them know how you are being treated?(not). You have an absolute right to proper medical care. Sounds like you've been fobbed off long enough, don't give up! Best of luck to you xx

Hi,

Me again. You need to contact Sal the FND patient advocate. Her e-mail address is sal@fndhope.org it's worth a try before you end up dying of a UTI or pneumonia through lack of care. Do if for your kids if nothing else.

You may have to just get any old GP and try to train them up. Just think of them as prescription monkeys. Unfortunately it's hard to change ingrained ideas. GP's and doctors don't want to know that they have been treating sick people appallingly for years. They would rather listen to anything that backs up their thinking than have to admit that they have to change. They are not all that bad, there are some who are starting to listen.

Hope you get the care that you need. xx

Yes, I like that ‘prescription monkeys’ accurate description🤣

Can I say there are grave areas for concern that need to be addressed by your care givers. Untrained people giving controlled medications and insulin is very worrying and a dangerous practice. Your GP should get a community Matron out to asses and manage your complex needs.
