    Your advice about GP appointments is really useful. You suggest, if possible, trying to see the same GP, but this is an issue I have raised before.

    We struggle to get appointments at our practice, and are unable to make non-urgent appointments. I have a “usual” doctor who I’ve NEVER SEEN, and it is very rare to get the same GP even when a patient has been advised to follow-up.

    Three of our long established GPs have retired in the last 12 months, and, in my personal opinion, the practice is failing its patients.
