Should we trust our Gp’s?


I thought my Gps were two female Doctors who job shared. I asked for these doctors especially and was assured they both would be named as my full time Doctors’.

 

 

However I have recently learnt that my named doctor is not the doctors I see but some doctor, whom I know of, but have not seen him in over 5 years. It gets worse, it seems that this doctor not only receives all the reports sent to my Gps’ but also writes all the reports asked for by many different agencies.

 

 

How on earth can I trust this doctor to write a true report about me when I have not seen him in ages and why do reports about me get sent to him to read?

 

Since I have started to write this blog I have to admit I feel braver. So I am going to write to another doctor within the same practise and ask that he be not only my named doctor but the only doctor, were possible, that I see.

 

I am so upset by finding this out that if the doctor I ask, cannot take on any new patients, I think I will have no other choice but to leave our practise and join the other Health Centre in my town.

 

So please, double check that your Gp is the one that all reports about you and that all reports asked for are written by the main doctor you see or at least one that knows you!

 

Take care

Mrs G.
