Anyone else noticed that it is getting harder and harder to get them to pay up. I have just spent 20 mins arguing with mine over trying to authorise a visit to a rheumatologist because I have been so unwell over the past few months and have been taken off St Thomas' list. Suspicious little me suspects they've got wise to the fact that NHS is cutting back on monitoring and reviews as they told me that they will pay for this visit but not a follow up, which I have never been told before.
I wonder now if people like me with chronic conditions are now going to be caught in the middle with NHS cutbacks and private insurance refusing to pay up. It is very dispiriting.
