    Dear Catherine,

    I am amazed that the Doctor has given you a warning.

    When we are fighting for help for our loved ones, the N.H.S. may be short staffed but as a Carer help is desperately needed.

    Can you change your Doctor or write a letter, go and see him/her?

    Some more members will come on line and offer help.

    Best wishes
    Christine

    Wot? On a warning from your doctor? I have never heard of such a thing, and it would simply never happen with my doctor. Can you contant the surgery again and ask for a one-to-one with him or her.

    And pronto.

    Much love

    Margaret.

    Go to the Doctors.
    Cause a stink.
    Demand to see the Doctor.

    Do it NOW.

    I know what I am talking about.

    With Love Barb XX

    Doctor says that I am rude to her staff and demand things to be do for my husband Gerry but if you dont push nothing gets done you have to be a carer to understand you look after then 24/7 the Doctor sees them for ten mins will never give up the fight tomorrow is other day Regards Catherine

    Is there any basis in that assertion?

    If there is, then try other routes instead. I know that desperation breeds anger, but if that anger simply causes a closing of ranks on the other side, it gets you nowhere.

    Cold reasoning and using their own system has worked for us. Also, establishing a positive relationship.
