I picked my son up from Nursery on Tuesday night and they were concerned he may have chicken pox. At this time of night my Dr Surgery was closed so 101 made an appointment at this hospital to see check if my 1 year old did have chicken pox or not as this would determine if he could go to nursery or not.
When I saw the Dr they told me they were not expecting to see patients tonight. I'm not sure what they were expecting to be doing that night. They could not care less about my child and told me it probably was chicken pox without really looking at his rash.
On this advice I did took my child out of nursery for the rest of week, as most parents will know you still have to pay for the childcare even when your child is sick. I also had to take 3 days off work to look after him. My child was fine in himself and no more spots or rashes came up. It began to seem very unlikely that he did have chicken pox. I made another appointment with my Dr surgery who conformed he did not have chicken pox.
Thanks to that Dr who basically couldn't be bothered to deal with my 1 year old I have missed 3 days of work and he has missed 3 days of nursery which I have paid for.
A Dr who is not interested in dealing with patients seems to be in the wrong line of work.
