I just got a reply from our local NHS public liason office regarding a letter I wrote asking about what I should expect at my 'annual review'. I had an appointment for a 'review', but when I attended it my gp didn't know why I was there or what was expected of him.
All a bit embarrassing really, but just down to the usual lack of communication between all of the medical folk and their seperate departments who reluctantly have to deal with us.
Anyway, one of the reasons given for nobody knowing who was supposed to do what, where, when and why:
"The practice have only got the one patient on gluten free foods. "
I think that could be me.
If 1% of the population is a coeliac, there can only be around 100 patients at our practice.
So why do we have to wait so long for an appointment?
