    @gennepher the only way I think you can tackle this is to have a look at this link NHS patients' rights - Citizens Advice...you could also try writing to your local Clinical Commissioning Group which you can look up online...everyone is entitled to have access to a GP for some reason Wales particularly in Swansea seem to be trialing the remote access i.e. no direct access to a GP...however given your particular hearing difficulties that is not practical or safe for you so they will need to make suitable arrangements...it is possible to see who if the chair of your local CCG that information is available online...good luck

    Good Morening Ladies, Gentlemen and Meanderthals, they are related by marriage to Neanderthals, but have a tendancy to wander off.

    A 5.2 on that meter of mystery and naughtiness this morning. It's calculation time again grrrrr.

    The weather looks interesting and positively tropical if you are an Eskimo, thought, rubbing noses is that recommended during this pandemic?

    I'm not certain what today has planned for me or all you fellow posters, painters and gamers have a great one and remember tomorrow is national bin day.

    5.6 this morning. It was so cold and frosty on our morning walk but I was quite toasty as my new coat has a faux fur lined hood. Hands were a bit cold though even though I had my sheepskin gloves on.

    We are not going to the farm shop for milk at the moment. We feel it is sensible to avoid icy country roads to get the farm milk. So it is a trip to the supermarket to get organic milk for my kefir this morning.

    Morning campers.
    Totally forgot that the car was in for a service and fell into a YouTube hole after binge-watching It's A Sin (and btw - WOW what a powerful series... expect BAFTAs galore)

    So car in and I shamelessly treated myself to a couple of iced buns and a sausage roll from a family owned bakery on the Parade so that was breakfast and lunch sorted! Not particularly low carb but I have a day of radio clips to continue so... that is my reward. The good thing is I am well under-way and hope to get all the way through them today.

    Bin day in an icy cul-de-sac is soon to be included as a Winter Olympic sport.

    Good morning all. Fbs today was 9.3. Pulse 96. No change in diet so possibly combination of new medication effects and less exercise? Make the most of today folks, weather and lock down permitting of course.:)

    I really must keep abreast of the news. How could I have not noticed how The Woke were so powerful they could cancel seasons? Huzzah for the brave boys - are there any female members? - of the CRG who have the power to restore seasons . Very over inflated sense of self importance methinks. There was me thinking that creation in general and seasons in particular were down to God not that twerp Baker and his hangers on.

    Some wonderful names given to those who make the grade in elite NFL. My favourite just now is L'Jarius Sneed. Tempted to explore Deed Poll, write a whodunnit with him as the villain or change username here. Until now this had been front runner Ha'Sean "Ha Ha" Treshon Clinton-Dix.

    Didn't know you lived in the southern states of our old colony and taught creationism.

    Don't assume too much young man. We're on the internet. For all you know I may be safely cloistered in Mar-a-Largo licking my wounds. The internet really does allow for alternative truths and different realities.
