"I fell unwell but cannot register with my doctor for the next 17 days"

About: Lincolnshire Teaching PCT

(as the patient),

I have recently moved to Lincoln. I went to register at my nearest surgery as I have been feeling unwell for a while and not getting any better. I was told I would have an appointment just to register in 17 days time.

I was told if I needed to see a doctor before then I would have to go back to my last doctor (75 miles away) or go to a drop in centre - nearest one Nottingham 30+ miles away.

What an awful service and so uncaring attitude.
