As a diabetic, I am in need of regular visits to the podiatry service for treatment on my feet. The local NHS service can only do appointments every 12 weeks. I need to go more regularly or I am in pain. I have to pay to go privately every 6 weeks. The private care is much better, but I don't think it's right that I have to pay. The NHS is letting me down! I can't book an NHS appointment easily either. I have to ring the Countess of Chester podiatry department to book an appointment, but they won't take bookings less than a month in advance - I have to be put on a waiting list.
