New Year No NHS
Popped over to my local GPs since my prescription is running out, only to find the place firmly locked with a sign to say they are closed until 28th January!!! Some National Health 'Service'. Rang NHS direct who were only taking urgent enquiries and taking four hours to return the call, then Seldoc who laughed - they think it is a mistake and tell me all GP surgeries are open tomorrow so I should try again then. Pathetic. The notice looks as though it is not a mistake. GPs would not have been allowed to close for this length of time in the past. If they really are closed until then I suppose I shall have to go to Casualty and try to drag a repeat prescription out of them. Dear me.
