Tomorrow morning I have an appointment at my local GP clinic. I have been asked to arrange an annual review for my hypothyroid and diabetes in a series of letters from some central office far away. When I phoned I was given an appointment with a nurse at a different practice, so off I went - only to find that it was a five yearly health check - asking things such as did I drink or smoke, checking my height and weight - nothing to do with the ongoing situation. The letters telling me to go for an annual health check have continued to arrive, so I called the number on the letter and had a few words - so now I have an appointment at my usual surgery - it is to discus my high cholesterol level. I was phoned and told to fast for it so they can do a blood test. I asked about my Hba1c and perhaps a check of my glucose levels - and maybe my thyroid - I was told that when tested at the end of last year my levels were normal - as I did not have any blood taken at the end of last year it is amazing that they know that. I do not hold out much hope for tomorrow's appointment, but I do intend to make a few points.
