"Feel I've been let down by GP's"

About: NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

(as the patient),

I feel Ive been let down by appalling GP's at 2 different practices in Dumbarton. I've been left suffocating with a constricted throat due to overly enlarged thyroid goitres but was refused a gp. Ive been refused repeat prescriptions because a doctor didn't add them to the repeat list when they should have been. Ive been refused treatement for hypothyroidims even though I have a diagnosis and was judged to be profoundly hypo with a THS of nearly 60 (dangerously high for those that dont know) Ive been refused blood test results. I have also been refused blood tests, which my condition dictates are necessary. Ive been refused referral to a consultant even though it was a GP that said I needed to see one. I have been left suicidal before and had no help when it was desparately needed.

I could go on with loads more, but I have a life to get on with that doesnt include GP,s or GGHB. I'll treat myself with drugs imported from abroad. I'm a lot healthier now that I was under our so-called caring health professional.
