"I wasn't told about my renal problems"

About: Cambridgeshire PCT

(as the patient),

I was finally told by a doctor on Tuesday that I have renal problems and that he has known for two years. Why hadn't my regular doctor told me?

Over that last two years I have been given prescriptions that include the warning about not taking if one has kidney problems. On Wednesday I asked for a blood test to find out the extent of damage but was refused cos apparently I had one about 9 months ago.
