    Hi All

    I have had a letter through from my GP to tell me to make an appointment with her to have my medication reviewed, normally I would not have an issue with this its just that a) had one two months ago, and b) she's notoriously difficult to get an appointment with as the next one for her is in 6 weeks time, and I will run out of my anxiety medication by then. There is another with a different GP this week, but worried that it won't count as my medical review; even though he is a GP. And I cannot afford to take time off thanks to work and university. Many thanks

    I've had medication reviews with other GPS. They see so many patients that they can't be expected to remember you much anyway. You will need to say at the start of the appointment that you're there for a review, but other than that it will be fine.
