Hi I am type 2 but told it is because I am fat 13 stone , I have a professional job and have early starts so I need to drive back home and get an appointment then or on every other Friday I do not work. My GP merged , now I cannot get to see my diabetic nurse unless I go to this **** surgery elsewhere , no appointments to fit in with work and nothing at all given except Glucophage which gives me the trots. I have been on probation at work due to being off at first. No monitoring No advice except give up potatoes - not happening - love mash , jacket and sometimes chips Really feel my GP has shafted me and I'm almost out of meds as I cannot see anyone. The next nearest doctors is also this alliance , in fact 70% is all the same 45 mins on hold to get an appointment , reported to the nhs commissioner , now they are on measures. Sadly this does not help. by next month I will have dropped out of the meds radar unless I get an appointment before then.
