Right so Once upon a time 8 weeks ago,
I had a sore throat,it went on for a week and the wife became weary of me ****ing and moaning about it and said "phone the Doctors"
So I phoned and the nice lady said " appointment in 2 weeks" so I said no thanks it'll have fixed itself by then.
fast forward 5 or 6 weeks to last week when the sore throat was really like swallowing rusty barbed wire.
The wife phones the Dr's and pulls the "i want a telephone consultation with a Dr not an appointment in 2 weeks."
The phone rings within 5 mins ,and after speaking to a Dr a magical space appears to visit him the same afternoon ?
Hmmm First question was why have you waited this amount of time?
Moral of the story is don't get fobbed off by receptionists who have no medical training and decide (in my case the non emergency sore throat )Could wait for a while before attention was needed from a trained professional.
Anyway Dr referred me to consultant in no time flat and my non emergency sore throat. guess what?
Pick a letter in between B and D.
Had a call which involved "we need a renal function blood test done a your local practice" not sure as my head is up my **** at the minute.
So phoned and ................
