"I cannot get an appointment to see my GP"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire

(as the patient),

Just called my practice. I have had quite high BP for 6 weeks, and other LTCs, and BO is not reducing. I ought to see my usual GP who knows me and all my medication interactions. But I cannot see this GP until over 3 and a half weeks because there are no appointments available, other than one when I am committed elsewhere.

How can I and others look after ourselves if we cannot access support and healthcare from our GP?
