I've been in 5 times in the last fortnight. This morning, another urgent appointment after I spent all night awake, nauseous, sweating and shaking with the mystery ailment I've had since September. As a kind of bonus (a free diagnosis with every 5 visits?), my GP pointed out that it looks like I am developing shingles. (Thanks Xmas Lupus fairy!)
So anyway, it strikes me that it would be so much more convenient if they just rented me a couch in one of the consulting rooms. It's warm and easily accessible. There's a shower and a dispensary on site. Plenty of parking for visitors , and I could easily ask my milkman to deliver there. In return, they get an extra income stream. It's win-win!
Alternatively, my rheumy could give me an appointment and try to sort out what's wrong. But that's crazy talk.
