I am a patient who has cauda equina syndrome and have to catheterise myself at least 5 times a day. I was quite content with my repeat prescription and felt that, because my Doctor is quite near, should I require the catheters earlier it wasn't a problem.
Then I had to start phoning a clinic further away from where I live every time I need a prescription which was very stressful, I have to have the prescription at least 3 days before I need it so that the chemist can get what I need.
Now I have to phone for the catheters 1 week before so that my wife can take in my other prescription so that they both arrive at the chemist at the same time.
So far it has been very good, I call the number and my prescription arrives the very next day, my only concern now is the holiday seasons, xmas, new year or any bank holiday that I believe is when things could go a little wrong. I need these things and without them I would be in dire trouble so I am willing to support the idea at the moment. Lets just HOPE.
