I have a lifelong condition and for the past 14 years or so have seen a consultant in general medicine at least 2 times a year to monitor me. I've noticed that the past two appointments instead of being 6 monthly have been an 8 month gap and now my next appointment is 9 months (although the consultant put on the form 6 months).
Can anyone explain what is going on? Surely if my consultant thinks I need to be seen every 6 months then that is what it should be. I wonder if anyone else is having the same experience?
