"Rushed appointments"

About: Victoria Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

I never feel as though I have enough time to spend with my GP / Practice nurse in relation to my diabetes. Appointments are always rushed, lasting only about 15 mins not allowing for time to digest the information and advice I am being given or to ask relevant questions and receive a full answer.

Dear Stig

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience concerning appointments with the GP/Practice Nurse. I would be happy to pass your comments on to the Practice directly if you are able to confirm the Practice you are referring to. Alternatively feel free to give me a call and we can discuss further.
