I am 76 years old and live in Lincolnshire, we are short of doctors and our local health centre has a waiting list of up to 3 weeks for a doctors appointment (By which time you could be dead!). I would like to get regular health checks, but no-one seems ready to take the time. I recently had an MRI scan on my lower back, as I have stiffness in bending & walking. I had to ring up weeks later to the doctor who basically dismiised me with ' sorry, it is wear & tear' nothing we can do about it!' I want to know if there is some physio I could do, some medicaments I could take, etc. No-one seems to care. Where do we go from here?
I walk dogs twice a day, I do gardeining within my capabilities. I just need a compassionate NHS??
Makes you want to go & live in Europe??
