Fobbed off by your doctor? Now a second opinion from an expert is just one phone call away

I know it's DM article again but it does sound as though this could be very useful to people who do get fobbed of by their doctor and don't know what to do next.

Thanks very much for this - I am fighting a possible parathyroid issue but my endo has a closed mind regarding symptoms and treatment so I may well phone this organisation for advise.

Hope you get a result Moggie. So terrible when people who should know better just don't bother to listen to you. Best of luck. Will be very interested if you get the help you need.

Only negative I can see is that your original specialist (in my case my endo) could refuse to see you again but maybe that's a chance worth taking. He has been very good regarding thyroid issues but where the parathyroid is concerned I think he is out of his depth but wont admit it.

If I do phone I'll give you an update.

Thanks again.

Poor woman seems to have been through a terrible time. Seems to be happening more and more. What with Polish surgeries opening at reasonable prices and telephone calls to get real help it shows just how desperate the NHS is getting.

So easy to have lies put on your records or be struck off from a surgery when caring for others - be warned.

I don't know, no doubt it will happen soon...good old Daily Mail will report it lol!

Seriously though, these folk seemed so well organised I think I'd go with them. At least they are interested. Sadly it will be a long time before they reach Norfolk...it takes a very long time for anything to reach Norfolk...sigh....
