    Anyone else used this for doctor?

    Seems a good system, but does it work?

    Don't know about that one but I have had to register with Patient Access and that seems OK after a lot of faffing about
    Can get appointments and repeat perscriptions without too much bother

    I’ve had several of consults over the phone with doctors, nurses and physios. On Tuesday I will be having a video consult with a McMillan physio which will be interesting, hope it works. The video is via an NHS set up

    First time I've contacted my doctor for about 2 years apart from vaccination.
    All very different...................

    I can start looking after myself now. Had a dentist appointment a couple of weeks ago, first in 18 months and planning to get my eyes test ASAP

    I'm having a telephone pre sedation assessment over the phone in a few weeks :Nailbiting. I'm really nervous about it. I've been waiting since October and found out on the NHS I'd still have to wait another 10 months and its not something that can wait, and will get worse over time. I've already put it off a while because I have a phobia of anything medical :rolleyes:. So I've had to bite the bullet and find the money to have it done privately.
    I'm not sure how the phone appointment will go, I'm sure they'd have to know what your blood pressure is beforehand. And I hate talking on phones, face to face would be better but I can understand why they wouldn't at the moment

    That must be so hard when you are ill and have a phobia :(

    Well done for taking the bull by the horns to get sorted
