I have found the doctor I want to see and who I shall ask to see rather than the idiot that Hubby has got lumbered with.
I’ve mentioned our surgery before (and the previous Lincolnshire one) and what a shambles it is trying to get an appointment.
In despair, Hubby tried to use their On Line Appointments system.
You’ll like this:
He got an email by return (from a non-reply source) telling him he could come to the daily sit and wait clinic (where we know you can expect to sit and wait for 4 hours), or he could ring or come into the surgery to make an appointment. We also know you go to the surgery to make an appointment and………….. sit and wait.
Today was a routine, and prebooked, INR blood check for Hubby.
Whilst we were sitting on their hard chairs waiting to be called in by his usual efficient and lovely nurse, a doctor came out of his office to call in a patient.
He was like a breath of fresh air, and had everyone laughing and smiling within ten seconds of his presence whilst he tried to find his appointment, who happened to be a young child.
A tall guy, well over 6 feet 2, his oozed confidence and ability, and I wished I was ill just so as I could see him!
Anyway, they say laughter is the best medicine, and we both came out of the surgery feeling tons better than when we went in.
