Haven't been on here for a while although I read the blogs most days. I am in remission from stage 4 oc and each time I book a holiday with MIA insurance I need a note on my medical records to the effect that I am fit to travel at the time of booking. I have been doing this several times a year for 4 years now and it normally involves one of the practices gp's phoning me and i then have to explain what is required (tried making appointment but always advised it will be a telephone conversation) and as far as I am aware they check my notes and add this on. Well I have just had a quite heated discussion with one of the doctors at my practice about putting a note on my records for my forthcoming week away in September and the first thing she said was "I've never heard of that" and then went on to say that how can she put this note on when nobody knows whether I would be fit or not and to know for sure would entail a medical which would cost because it would be private. I tried to explain that everything was on my medical records and that I hadn't had any problems getting this done in the past. Needless to say I am feeling very stressed and still not sure if I'm going to be insured! has anyone else had this problem?
Love to you all x x
