"Frustration with my GP"

My GP likes to use homeopathic practices over real medicine; that leaves me unwell and means I have to go back a week later. I’ve had an infection for 6 weeks, I’ve been to the GP four times but I've not been given anything effective. It’s like talking to a brick wall.
My GP also made it difficult to get the medication I need, I think it’s the way the system is set up but my GP’s not doing anything to make it any easier. I need to get my prescription from a psychiatrist and it means I need to keep going to him every two months just for this.
I’m not allowed to change GPs because of the medication I’m on. It gets frustrating sometimes and I feel this would be the only solution to my problem.
