"Prescription problems caused my son to be hospitalised"

About: London

(as a parent/guardian),

Having changed GP to the grove surgery N17, I needed to continue with my son's repeat prescriptions. The GP said his details had not been transferred, therefore they could not give him the medication. They said that we should have had a lot in stock, knowing that we were changing GP!

I finally got the GP to give him something, but not the one we asked for, which we later found out to be of far inferior quality. This ended with my son being hospitalised for 8 days, after damaging his liver in the process.
