"Waste of time"
Posted by Anonymous
My elderly mother who is 76 years old tried to get an appointment at her GP's but was told that they had no appointments for 2 weeks and that she should go to Barking walk-in centre. After waiting for an hour this morning my mother was not seen by the doctor and was told to that she did not have a minor injury so she should go back to her GP. My mother has been suffering from a very irritable skin problem for a while now and nothing that the GP has given her has helped. I am confused as to why she was not seen and why she was fobbed off. I can see from the reviews that this is not just a minor injury unit so why was an elderly patient who is obviously suffering being treated this way. It's a disgrace!
