What I liked
Doctor was very curteous and took time to explain things although was 1 hour late
What could be improved
Reception staff behaviour is as if they are doing me a favour. (I pay my tax and NI and hence am paying their salary).
My daughter's GP adviced a blood test. I was told that i could get the earliest appointment for the blood test in 2 weeks time and then it will be 1 week for the results. That means for a simple blood test, because i am in their catchment area (my GP had categorically asked me to go to either Hillingdon or Mt Vernon - they do not do blood tests for 5 year olds) my daughter has to wait longer. I can't imagine what if there is a hidden ailment that needs to be treated at the earliest. God forbid and bless us all. Should the government stop NI and leave us to pay private health insurance?
