Long wait for GP

Have your say

I ring a surgery for an appointment.

The receptionist welcomes me and asks what it is I want.

I reply: “To see a GP about this Community Alliance, Deep End project.” There is a pause.

“Certainly,” she replies. “Would 13 March suit you?”

I, in astonishment, say: “Gosh, tomorrow?”

“Not quite,” she replies. “That would be a year tomorrow.”

That would fit in perfectly with the many reports on GP waiting times as recently published in The Scotsman.
