Next patient please – we’re taking bookings for December

ZELLA COMPTON: Teen novel made me realise my views are institutionalised

Have your say

I’m wondering how the system is going to cope when seven-day-a-week doctors’ surgeries become a reality.

For me, I’d rather be able to get an appointment in the first place.

We are in desperate need of more GPs as I have discovered..

I’m finding it impossible to see a certain doctor at the moment.

My first appointment was in mid-July and I was told to book another with her in August.

At the moment, she has a limited number of appointments available at the beginning of September, but I’ve had to ring every Monday so far to try to get one.

This state of affairs is simply not good enough.

I’m hoping to be seen by Christmas.
