I changed GP for the second time in one year because I felt the previous one wasn't a good one. Guess what, it seems I found a worse one. I explained my problem to him and he just told me to go to a genital clinic. What's strange is that he didn't even refer me to the clinic, he said I'd have to do it myself. I think a GP either has to give advice about your condition, or if he doesn't know, he must refer you to someone else, but he can't just say 'sorry I can't do a thing, go there, goodbye'. Am I right? I'd change doctors again but quite frankly I am tired of being treated like this. Should I change again or complain to the practice? I really want to avoid complaining but am tired to be the one who leaves and the others stay.
Does anyone knows of a book or link where stuff about GPs is explained in detail, e.g. what they can do and what cannot do? I have read on a couple of websites including this one but I feel I am missing something. In general, I have seen GPs very few times over many years, often I just didn't bother, so I don't know as much as somebody else does, but I'd like to learn about all my rights as a patient
