LETTER: GP complaints

I WRITE to you on the NHS appointments.

NHS GP services seem to get worse these days.

Where are the days gone past? We used to be able to get appointments.

Now all we get is ‘You can’t have an appointment today, you have to wait for next week’.

Same with the diabetic appointments.

Why can’t patients have appointments which fit around them and their work etc, not just have set days.

I had an appointment but it was cancelled by the surgery because they were closed for the half day, but it wasn’t until about an hour or so before the appointment was due.

They always put notices up in surgeries stating appointments were not attended but when it comes to them, it seems another matter.

I now can see why people go to the A&E – they get better treatment.
