"Request to see doctor of choice at Lerwick health centre"

Posted by bernicia (as ),
I last visited a GP at the end of July and was prescribed medication for my condition.
I was asked by the doctor to see him in two months time.
On last week I visited the health centre to book an appoint for the following week.
I was told by the receptionist that the first available appointment would be in mid October. I have booked this but am not happy that I cannot see see the doctor for nearly four weeks.
I was offered to attend a walk in clinic, but there is no guarantee that I would be able to see the same doctor.
I hope this is not typical of the NHS in general.
