About: South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw

(as the patient),

I HAVE RECENTLY MOVED TO THE AREA AND REGISTERED WITH THIS SURGERY. I HAVE A CHRONIC ILLNESS AND HAVE MULTIPLE SYMPTOMS. ON SEEING MY GP I FELT I WAS NOT GIVEN A CHANCE TO SPEAK AND EXPLAIN MY ISSUES WITH MY HEALTH HAS A NEW PATIENT WITH THE SURGERY, I FELT I WAS RUSHED THROUGH THE APPOINTMENT WITHOUT SPEAKING AND GIVEN MEDICATION THAT HAS PREVIOUSLY NOT WORKED FOR ME. I WAS TOLD TO TRY IT FOR 3 MONTHS. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN I HAD USED IT BEFORE AND IT DID NOT WORK BUT MY COMMENTS WERE IGNORED. I LEFT THE SURGERY FEELING LET DOWN AND WORRIED THAT MY SYMPTOMS ARE GOING TO GET WORSE.. NEXT TIME I WILL TRY TO SEE A DIFFERENT GP AT THE SURGERY IF NOT THEN I THINK I NEED TO CHANGE MY GP...........
