Home truths from Chesterfield


I agree with Tony. In the last month I have had four very necessary GP contacts as a patient. All phone on the tray for telephone appointments and all with different doctors. Three related to two unconnected possible cancers. So no continuity and and a very definite impression that there could be no face to face. This flowed today by a telephone consultation with a specialist when I was informed that trust policy Re cancer investigation had changed because of Covid and against NICE guidance. That is as a retired GP. God knows what service the general public get !?
