Idiot GP
« on: August 26, 2015, 11:49:18 AM »
Last week I received a copy of letter sent to my GP concerning referral for a minor operation. Day later GP surgery calls and makes a booking for a Doctor to phone me for what I assume is about the referral.

15 mins ago the Doctor calls. The call was booked for 4:10 this afternoon but that's OK, no harm in ringing early on the off-chance I would be in.

Doc ~ "Hi, it's your doctor, what can I do for you?"

Me ~ "Hang on, you wanted to speak to me. That's why the surgery booked the call."

Doc ~ "Oh"

Anyway I said it was probably about the referral and mentioned the copy of the letter I received.

Tapping sounds on the line as Doc looks at computer.

"No letter here, I must have seen it but it's not been scanned in. Can you read me your copy?"

 Banghead

So, we get on and he asks me which hospital I preferred. I tell him; more tapping occurs.

"I can't seem to be able to make a booking"

 Banghead  Banghead

Doc gives up and tells me the office will sort it out and will call me when I can go and collect the paperwork.

When the booking eventually comes through, make sure it isn't for a hysterectomy.

I have more faith in the Vet than the GP.

I am surrounded by idiots.


Anyway, it appears preferred hozzy isn't giving out appointments so either I go on their waiting list or have it done elsewhere.

"It" being a cholecystectomy.

I shall go and collect the paperwork on Friday.

I think it rather unlikely if they take on NHS work.
