I have been with my current GP for about nineteen years and mostly they have been very good, the doctor that I always tried to see died recently and so I have been seeing whoever is available, although I don’t actually normally go to the GP surgery often.
A couple of years ago we moved out of the area but decided to stay registered at that doctors surgery because familiarity is always the preference, it does mean that when I need a repeat prescription we have to drive to pick it up but the pharmacy we use is about 100 meters from our home, so I am now thinking about registering with a local doctors surgery.
I must confess that I have been thinking about doing it for about two years but I’m a tad worried, you hear about peoples bad experiences with their GP and it worries me.
How do I know if it’s a good GP practice and the word practice after GP always worries me before start.
So I’m going to spend the afternoon checking out local doctors, are they accessible? Does the surgery look nice? What services to they offer? Do they have a doc who knows about CRPS?
