"GP failed to establish my health problems"

(as the patient),

GP failed to establish my health problems and prescribed drugs to me inappropriately. I have psoraisis. Last year it flared up and became very bad. I went to the GP several times and not one of them even asked how bad it was or asked to examine me. (my present GP did both these and refered me to a consultant immediately as he said my condition was severe. I have also developed a form of arthritis connected with psoraisis.)

My old GP surgery also failed to diagnose an underactive thyroid which caused me years of misery. I finally asked to change GP practice when I was prescribed drugs that were unsuitable and one that I told the GP had previously caused an allergic reaction.
