Hi Ladies, just a query does your gp have an issue if you attend a Walk in Doctors Clinic if you have an emergency. It seems mine does!!! Last week as if I wasnt bad enough, I accidentally hit my eye with the buckle of belt of my jacket. The belt has since been disposed of. I was bleeding a little and since it happened in a business premises I was advised to seek medical advice. Driving to my gp was a no no as wasnt sure about the vision. For obvious reasons didnt want to go to A and E so was recommended to go to the local walk in practice. I met a lovely doctor who prescribed eye drops and I am on the mend. However my gp seems to be odd over the fact I did this and did not go to him. I have explained the situation to his receptionist twice. I will be returning to him in two weeks anyhow as he wants to keep an eye on my bloods. It wasnt as if I do this regularly, my priority was to be seen since none of the family were at home, I opted for the nearest solution. Maybe there is some friction between gps and these walk in clinics. Apart from that due back to Oncologist at the end of May the day after my birthday in fact. I feel a little tired but that is age I imagine. But really no symptoms. So maybe down the road more treatment is in the pipleline. Wishing everyone well on the site. I do hope that we can all mark World Ovarian Cancer Day by attending the nearest event if possible. I know it is not possible for some to do so due to treatment etc. Thanks to Ovacare, Break Through Cancer and Socks for putting so much effort into organising these events. I believe UCC and Cork City Hall will be lit up in Teal so really looking forward to that. Best wishes
