Admin Problems Continue
« on: 20 February 2018, 01:21:20 PM »
Like many I have had issues with repeat prescriptions and getting appointments (both GP and and hospital). Now I have a new one -  multiple blood test forms from the GP practice. If go along with all four I would have 3 HbA1c tests, 2 iron levels, etc. Fortunately I can get every test done with two of the forms with no repeat tests. Some days I feel like a project manager again!   ;D

is this because you are seeing different Gp's at different times and they are all taking it upon themselves to request bloods?
