Just desperately need your advice. My very nice GP just retired. He used to regularity give me forms for blood tests for TSH, T4, vitamin D, folate, ferritin, liver function, etc. If I wanted a printout, that never was a problem.
Now there is a new doctor instead of him. Yesterday I was told my "results were normal". When I asked for a printout, this was treated with much suspicion and I was asked why I need it. Eventually, I was given a printout of ...just 2 parameters: TSH and free T4. I didn't see there were just 2 parameters till I got home (my mistake!). Today I went to the clinic again and again was questioned why do I need the test results and who they are for. When I said, it's for me, the new (scowling) receptionist said they have to put a request in with the doctor (which can only be done on Tuesday after Easter now) - and only if he allows it, I will be given them. I then requested an online access and they said there was none.
How do I go about this if the doctor refuses a printout? Any advice is much appreciated. Previously I was very low in ferritin and Vitamin D, so have to supplement all the time (I don't seem to be absorbing iron in tablet form). I am disgusted at how difficult it is to access your own blood results.
Thinking of changing practice as there is only one doctor but in the meantime I do need my results.
