After many years battling with the GP I have finally been referred to a specialist. They refused to refer me even though over the past 3/4 years they have been unable to stable my levels, they just up the medication. I can feel a lump in my throat and it presses on my windpipe which makes me cough and wretch. After a scan it has shown I have an enlarged thyroid gland. My GP’s comment were “well you’ll get your wish now as you will be referred one way or anothe.” When she got the results her parting comment was “ I can refer you if you want but I doubt they will do anything”.
I think it is such a shame that the lack of professionalism on not one but most of the GP’s I’ve had the pleasure to meet is appalling.
I’m sure if the patient spoke to them in the same way they would be asked to leave the surgery.
So here’s hoping that I can be sorted out finally because I’m so sick of feeling ill.
