"Lack of GP service"
Posted by Help please (as ),
Our daughter lives in Aberdeen was admitted as an emergency for abdominal pain and operated on.
When she was discharged she came home to recover but became very unwell resulting in another emergency admission to our local hospital where she remained for the next 10 days.
The staff there were fantastic.
She has been discharged and now has an even longer recovery period of a couple of months.
I contacted our local GP as she requires medication and sick line etc and after a lot of discussions they have refused to assist us stating she needs to get on a train to Aberdeen and see her own GP. They stated that the emergency was dealt with and they are not prepared to take on someone with chronic conditions.
She is a young girl who has spent nearly 3 weeks in hospital and requires follow up and analgesia which we are struggling to get a prescription for.
Our daughter was a patient at this practice since birth to going to university. Thankfully her GP in Aberdeen has helped us and even attempted to talk to our local GP practice were it appears were even ruder to her hanging up on her!
Do all GPs not have a duty of care?
