My GP surgery is a dispensing one, they don't seem to be able to order items without the main GP's say so. I have asked this morning if we can have our prescriptions dispensed elsewhere, our GP is a 12 mile round trip and can be an absolute pain. My husband could do without the trip, I don't drive, and we have a mentally handicapped family member who we care for 24/7 we are all on meds, and our house is absolute mayhem from dawn to dusk!!!!!! with mega massive stress. So when my husband went to collect his PD meds this morning and was sent back with 8 bottles Amantadine oral suspension???? because they cant get the capsules well i flipped my lid, how on earth do they expect someone with tremor to take liquids???????????? when i spoke to the local Morrisons pharmacist I was told they have the caps its not a problem there is no shortage????? but the GP said as they are a dispensing surgery we can't take our scripts anywhere else, just having a right good groan sorry everyone can't think straight this week at all any views most welcome xxx
