I find it unbelievable and totally unacceptable that you cannot book an appointment at Forres health centre for two weeks. This is not an isolated incident! This happens on a regular basis. In all other parts of the UK you cannot book an appointment with the gp in advance. Why should you visit the gp and sit around for hours to see a doctor when your problem is not serious enough to go to a&e. Surely appointments are wasted on this system. For example I have tonsillitis, I book an appointment for over 3 weeks time. In that time I suffer without medication but my condition has got better alone. I'm not 100% I no longer need that appointment.
Unacceptable! ! !
I understand the nurse and consultants been booked but not the gp.
I really hope this is changed and would love to hear your defence on this matter.
Thanks for reading
Your extremely disappointed, sick and upset patient
