"Waste of NHS money being seen by Dr employed by..."

About: Colchester General Hospital

Had photos taken and a few weeks later seen at ECH by a Dr who did not have access to medical history. The Dr could not access blood results. I was told that I could be treated by light therapy. When I explained about the drugs I was taking for another condition the Dr backtracked and prescribed creams and blood tests. I was seen again today. Once again the Dr could not access blood test results and said there is nothing more they can do but see me once or twice a year. I told said that this would be a waste of time and money. The Dr did not examine me and seems happy that a biopsy done ten years ago is relevant to this widespread skin condition.
