"Stockings"

About: Leeds PCT

(as the patient),

Early May I was measured by the prectice nurse for compression stockings as the ones I wear are too tight and cause pain, I was leter told that I could not have them until i had a 'D' I explained that fpor the pasty seven years since having an heart bypass I hade worn the stockings. However on retiurning from the Fire services rest home in devon I made arranegemts to be measured yet agin and when the stockings arrived they were the same size as before.

I have to await the return from hloidays of the nurses who did the testso I have been tolds.

Why do some medical staff not listen to patients? At 77 I have never known things so disorganised.

If patients were lkistened to and doctors advice listened to perhaps things would be better
