My young cousin had two small babies, the second was born prematurely, and first was not well, so she called a doctor from the Dun cow surgery requesting a home visit, as she would find it difficult to get two tiny babes and pram down flights of stairs....
She had to go to the surgery as they refused to come out. She moved with her husband to the Midlands as the air quality in the Old Kent Road
was diabolical. I have heard it has a fearsome receptionist too..
There is another surgery further down , The Surgery as it's called, So many people have complained about it. The reluctance on the part of its doctors to home visit is legendary. I was told if my husband is too ill to visit, call an ambulance. Which I did twice and both times he was admitted to hospital. Even the Ambulance men had heard about this place. On one occasion I called the doctor in as I was con cerned about my husband having had a stroke and was falling over in his chair. He said he would come and see me four days time. I convinced him that my husband needed to be seen sooner rather than later.
When the esteemed doctor came he did not take a pulse, check breathing etc., in fact he did not stand nearer than five feet away! he was just a lazy b*******d . In essence don't go there either!
