"Unhappy with GPs in Derbyshire"

About: Derbyshire County PCT

(as the patient),

I have visited various general practitioners – none have seemed to know anything about mental health issues, chronic fatigue/pain, or learning difficulties.

Because I look normal (whatever that is) the GP’s presume that you cannot be seriously ill.

The Doctors never refer you half the time to specialists and they never do blood tests for patients, unless you request for one. They keep swapping and chopping GP’s – which is frustrating, as you get used to one, then another one comes in.

One of the branches of my surgery only opens in the mornings, so this means that certain patients who live in my village cannot access GP support after a certain time.
