This GP practice is excellent and I have no complaints, as such.
But gaining information on how to go about assessments ( ie; Possible hip replacement surgery) I've had differing advice from the practice, dependent on who you talk to .
For example, since bilateral hip x-rays 21 st June. were performed; Firstly informed I have to access an MSK website, fill in forms, etc; prior to GP referral.
2 nd information given is that I can get an assessment from an in-house physiotherapist, who can then refer me to a waiting list, if required !!
So this physio call has been arranged. But it's taken 2 months so far. Very distressing when you're in the older age bracket !
Also, it would be appreciated if reminders could be sent re appointments, please. Hard to remember various appointment calls, especially with poor eyesight and memory.
Thankyou for your consideration on these matters
