After shock diagnosis last week (see previous thread) I went to the DN yesterday. What a waste of my time. She was new to the practice, b*ggered up the pc and spent more time trying to get into the system than talking to me. This practice really is a bl**dy shower! She took my weight, apparently I’m heavier than 2014 (no sh!t Sherlock) and my hba1c has been over 59 since 2015. Nice of them to mention it then? I can’t have a meter and it’s a waste of my time and money to do it. Really? She didn’t ask to see my feet, but I see a chiropodist privately anyway as I have hard skin. She didn’t know when I’ll get an eye test. I did get another blood test form form for end of January and a pile of print offs about all the food I should be eating. More carbs per day than I eat in a week! And they don’t take blood in surgery now. Outsourced to chemists or walk ins. Mon-Friday 9-4.45. Great. I work Mon -Fri 9-5 in the next county over. No chance then as I can’t take time off work yet as starting new job in January. Surgery hours have also changed to 9-4 with a half day on Thursday. That’s nice for them. No extended hours at all. Totally pe@d off now.
