"Inflexible doctor"

About: Merseyside

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

Went to my GP at Sefton Park Medical Centre this morning for flu jab. I was told to take off coat and roll left sleeve up to save time. I have a frozen left shoulder and they usually give jab and blood in my right arm to protect my left arm. This time, the GP didn't like this and complained. There was a stand off.

The GP told the nurse they had a difficult patient here.Then, as I left they said that in 12 months time I'd be having it in my left arm. For 20 years, I have had jabs and test in my right arm.
