I am on a restricted diet- The service provided for my requirements (with regard to prescriptions) is very efficient.. telephone or leave a message... prescription arrives within a few days.
Dietician is very good. However I do not always require an annual appointment.
The only issue I have is:
The wording of the letter.. If I fail to comply and do not make an appointments.. the service will be withdrawn (not verbatim)
I find this unacceptable, far too authoritative and overbearing.. infact, I find it quite threatening! (do as we say or else)
Also, the unit allocation.. I can only have 16 units.. want extra? no! (or swap one for one) It's for my health, I'm told - I am in reasonable health (apart from other illnesses) I don't over-indulge, I'm not fat and I don't drink or smoke to excess - why is my diet (which is already restricted) being even more restricted by this government?
I cannot order or eat something different unless I don't have bread, i.e. swap for other units/food!
Basically I feel a "one cap fits all" is not appropriate
