Doctors

 Apart from flue jabs I have not been to the doctors for several years, but out of the blue I recieved a text message saying I needed a medication review and would I take my blood pressure twice a day for 2 weeks and send the results to the surgery. They would telephone me  after a week to discuss the results!! I had to borrow a BP machine from my soninlaw, and then buy one as he neede his!!  so took it morning and evening for a fortnight, took the results to the surgery and posted them through the door. About a week later I had a call from a withheld number (I don't usually answer them but did this time) The pharmacist discussed my medication which she did'nt  change as it from the hospital, she didn't say anything about my BP so I asked her, she hadn't had the results I sent in so I had to tell her my highest and lowest readings. Now I have to do it again 3 days a week and do it twice each time with an interval of 10 or15 mins between, and just put down the lowest one!!! She said she has made a note to find my original ones. Why was she not given them when I tookthem in.???? The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing not very reasuring is it??

  1. I have a review now and again. It's a bit of a nuisance but reassuring in a way. xx
