Man flu update

Overnight, it appears the little tickle I had has now turned into a fully blown chest infection. The lungs are crackling like hell.

So off to the GP to get some antibiotics.

Something so easy you would think.

112 redials, 15 mins left on hold...

"Hello, Surgery!"
"Hi, can I have an appointment today please"
"Sorry, we have nothing left for today whatsoever!"

Such a wonderful NHS.

"Is there anything I can do to get an appointment, I cant breathe properly?"
"Is it an emergency?"
"Well as I said, I cant breathe properly"
"Ok, I'll add you on to the end of surgery but you'll have to sit and wait!"
"Thank you".

So why the hell dont they just add a few more appointments on at the end of the day.  Like I have to if an academic comes in asking for financial advice.  GPs really shouldnt be exempt from working hours as required.
