I've had mixed experiences when dealing with out of hours staff to see a GP if I've run out of medication at the weekend. When I mention what medication I'm on I'm often suddenly treated differently, like a junkie or drug dealer etc. obviously I find this upsetting and frustrating being stereotyped this way by the staff manning the reception desk.
Though with the GP's themselves when I've got to see one, I can only report a positive, understanding, and sympathetic experience.
