About: Kingston PCT

(as the patient),

My dear wife has the bad idea to ask NHS for an explanation after we required a full record of my health file from the GP. He asked a nice 40 quid and sent 3 copies of a letter from the hospital I sent him the year before.

After rectifying everything I received some money back and the file in question.

A week later I asked a visit of the home visit GP of that surgery, a speedy guy who never hears what you say and gives you a prescription and nothing gets better.

That time he gave me a medicine for people with bipolar and made a note that I was imagining my pains and my diarrhoea?!?

That's the second time that GP is playing with my health. I will go to see another GP, I know it will be different troubles. Where are the old fashioned GPs we knew?

Are they now becoming simple NHS machine following a book and afraid of practising the medical art?

Now I have that nasty diarrhoea since last year, and different pains. I checked all on the internet and it seem all real with the illness I have.
