"My GP takes the time I need"

About: Merseyside

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

Vauxhall Health Centre is so much better than my previous GP. They don't stick to the 7 minute appointment time, if you need longer you get longer. Once I had a 45 min appointment. The GP was great. She said other people can wait, because I needed this time. They also picked up my diabetes which my old GP didn't despite me telling then about all the usual symptoms. The receptionists at Vauxhall are great too, not like elsewhere. Receptionists are great. I also like being able to get my prescriptions sent direct to my chemist.

I also like them because they have never called me an attention seeker like may old GP did. They don't dismiss my symptoms and will do tests to check.
