" I am undergoing investigation for several medical issues"

About: Plymouth Teaching PCT

(as the patient),

At present I am undergoing investigation for several medical issues; but as yet have not had results from any of them. So I can only respond to the arrangement of the appointments so far, which has been very good. I would advise people to write to their GP, listing all the medical problems they have. I did them a letter and as if by magic I have been arranged appointments to see consultants over problem which you bury with the passage of time. The future looks good. It seems to me that when you see your GP he only had time to deal with the one medical problem. If you list them on paper he cannot ignore them. I will add that I am 76 years old and have been going to the gym for 17 years, it influences your GP no end.
