"Bad appointment process"

About: Derbyshire County PCT

(as the patient),

I tried to book a non-urgent appointment at my GP Practice, Elmwood Medical Centre, only to be told that all "bookable appointments" have been filled up for the next 4 weeks. They then advised to ring every morning to see if I could get an urgent one the same day.

So I have to pretend that a condition is more urgent than it actually is or wait over a month to see my GP.
