So after gearing myself up to plunder my, frankly limited, resources in order to see my consultant before my January appointment due to the fact that I seem to be heading in the wrong direction health wise, this morning I called his secretary.
Got through to her first attempt and two hours later she calls me with a November NHS appointment.
Just the relief of knowing that I won't be left high and dry has helped!
Plus yesterday my son had an asthma attack at school and his own gp saw him pretty much straight away.
When it works it's truly amazing. It's just when it doesn't.....
