"No appointments available"
About: NHS Highland NHS Highland
Posted by Olaf35 (as ),
I am writing concerning a relative of mine who is a type 1 diabetic.
My relative has had a nasty cold developing into a wheeze.
This has happened on several occasions. As a diabetic in my opinion, they ought to have an emergency appointment at Fairfield Surgery, Abbin Street, Inverness. He has been informed that there is no appointments available. Only to see the next person in the queue get an appointment for the next day. I know there should be no discrimination within the health service, but as a Type 1 Diabetic I would have assumed they would be seen quickly to prevent this turning into a hospital admission.
As a registered nurse I am disappointed with this treatment they have received.
