First GP visit since mine retired. Saw a locum. As well as discussing 'frozen' shoulder I asked for a referral to ENT. Told to contact main GP secretary. After 5 failed attempts got through. Told that was incorrect procedure but would speak to locum. Locum not in until today. Secretary calls back, says locum only recalls the shoulder problem, so no notes on file, so no referral, so have to go back and ask again!!!

How bloody infuriating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very infuriating Tony, and the frozen shoulder doesn't sound too good either. I don't know what I'm going to do when my GP retires (don't think it'll be that long). He's one in a million.
Hope you get your appointment with the ENT eventually.
take care, Kathx

Thank you both. What with the frozen shoulder and a compressed nerve in my neck, I feel as if I should be ringing bells in Nostrodam.

I remember you saying you were dreading your GP retiring.
Hope it's sorted soon. Is there any particular reason you want to go back to ENT?
Not that I'm being nosey or anything Quasimodo ;)

Esmerelda, Esmerelda....the bells, the bells....(or maybe it's just tinnitus :P )

Quasimodo...hmm, that rings a bell.

I want to go and have my hearing checked, have my T-Tube checked, and ask if they have any tinnitus therapies available.

I feel a bit lost without my old GP. She has been with my right from the start with this, could tell how I was feeling just by looking at me, knew when I needed time off to recharge my batteries.

The locum was arrogant and condescending. My daughter had to see her today, and those were her exact words, too.

Hope all is well with you, you old :witch:

:lol:
