what a mess the NHS is in. I have been having issues with my coil for a while and it's been a trial trying to get to the doctors for appointments. I have been for appointments all over the town, at different surgeries, since October, and finally now get get a new one fitted . Today I popped in to make an appointment and literally cannot get one for three weeks and apparently they are not available after 2.45pm. How are full time working people expected to do this? I should not have to ask school to cover me for routine procedures, surely? I was there ages just stunned that it is impossible and she gave me a card for a local sexual health clinic that might be able to help. But I have been told I need a scan afterwards too and must see my G. P to be referred for this. The receptionist just seemed unable to help! Sorry but needed to rant. Anyone else struggling with appointments?
