Really bad experiences with GP surgery watch

    She keeps giving me the same crap every time telling me how many patients shes got, like its my problem. Urgh. Luckily she agrees that the arrangement of seeing her twice a week isn't working, but I dont know if that means I can still be seen in an as and when needed basis. I think I need to change surgery.

    I'm glad to see you survived that upset stomach without the GP appointment, something to ponder

    I cant trust that ill be seen at this surgery if I ever have a condition that needs medical treatment. The receptionits aren't equipped to decide who needs an appointment and who doesn't.

    I suspect that as someone already receiving two appointments per week (I am astounded that they offered this in the first place), you're probably a patient who is continually unsatisfied. I'm sure they will be relieved to hear that you want to leave given the amount of resources you are already consuming.

    I would be satisfied if they didnt discriminate against me and treated me like any other patient like they're supposed to. I have nothing more to say to you.

    Your gp cannot treat you exactly like any other patient because you do not show the same behaviour as other patients. Your gp will be treating you in the same way as they would treat a patient who frequently attends the surgery when they do not need medical treatment - trying to reassure them but to get them to understand that this prevents someone who is really ill being seen. I really doubt that changing surgery is going to improve the way you are treated.

    You might find it useful to join a support group like this one https://www.anxietyuk.org.uk/about-a...health-anxiety and to practise the methods in this booklet to try and think about your health less often http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/hypocho...%20%202010.pdf

    Ultimately you are the only person who can change the way you think. I really believe that you would find extra magnesium helpful in dealing with your anxiety. Eat a healthy diet, take fish oil or flaxseed oil and when you feel anxious take some exercise while focusing on the exercise not on your worries. You can learn to control this but daily visits to your gp will not actually help you.

    Well I disagree. And I dont think magnesium or oil or any other such nonsense will cure me.

    I do, but you just dont know the **** I go through every day of my life and you think theres an easy cure. I wouldn't have gone through so many talking therapies and medications if I didnt want to get better, but its just put of my nature im afraid.
    Whats the link for? Is that supposed to be some kind of insult?

    On the contrary, it's supposed to show that there are things that would help you. Any further comment will be ignored as you are simply attention seeking.

    Receptionists are always very angry, they get bored of their job and sulk that they couldn't become doctors.
    Are you being deliberately obtuse and crass?

    Whatever you say, I dont need your comments if they're going to be unhelpful. Have a nice life.

    They just refused to give me an appointment. I was advised to make an appt urgently.
    Why do you need two apppointments a week? Seems very bizarre.
