Hi guys, my GP is as helpful as he thinks he is allowed to be in that he lets me have a jag every 8 weeks. He sent me to a haema who was downright awful, cant say more, because i have now made an official complaint. Anyway, I have secured funding from the Benenden Friendly Society to get a second opinion and my GP has said he is happy to make a referral to a suitable one, because he feels trapped and has said he needs someone, a consultant, to TELL him to start treating me as I feel I need it. I think he's afraid of litigation if it all backfires later. However, having had one disastrous meeting with an nhs haema we don't want it to be a wasted exercise again, so, does ANYONE out there know of a haematologist, in Scotland, who actually knows a thing or two about PA? He/she needs to have an NHS post as well as a private one. We can't be referred to an English one because referrals between England and scotland aren't as easy or quick as it should be for a supposedly UNITED KINGDOM! God, i hate yellow!
