I was going to start a Falmouth Road
GP thread, but it seemed logical to continue this one. I popped in the other week to request an appointment and was told there was nothing available till the end of January. I said no problem as it was not urgent and was simply responding to a request from the surgery to have a medicines assessment by their GP. So I said to the receptionist that the first week of Feb would be fine. No she said, you don't understand, we have appointments available in Feb but we can't give you one because they have not been released yet, come back in February and we may be able to give you one. I asked if there was an alternative to this process, she said I could come to the emergency surgery at 7.30am, queue until 9pm when the surgery doors open and expect to be seen by 11am. She then pointed to the information gizmo on the wall that said " If you come to the emergency surgery and don't want to wait wait one and a half hours to be seen, go to A&E" I replied "are those my only alternatives?" "Go private" was her reply
Does anyone know of a private GP in this area?
