Having found that my husband gets on well with the convene after using a weeks supply of samples the incontinence nurse faxed through to GP a request for prescription , this prescription was then sent by surgery to chemist. When I went to collect the items I was given a months supply. Of convenes and wipes and NO bags. The pharmacist said she had not received prescription for bags and so could not dispense them.!! These blips are what we carers could do without.
My moan is .....where is the common sense , firstly by doctor who is prescribing and pharmacist when dispensing, why not give the surgery a call and ask if this is correct with no bags??? Consequently we are now waiting the obligatory 3 days for prescription, then chemist has to order them in. Nothing is simple .I could scream.Now I am back to changing bed 3 times a night after a brief spell of bliss!
Just having a rant . Hope you all have a good day xx
