People need to have face to face G.P appointments.Hearing loss can be a problem with telephone appointments . Face to face appointments are necessary for correct diagnosis . My son had his little toe and metatarsal removed in lockdown due to being passed from one to another and nobody seeing him except a private chiropodist who told him there was no infection.  This was going on for some weeks  .The toe could have been saved with early diagnosis and treatment.The doctor also neglected to make an urgent referral when he was supposed to. He relied upon photos of my sons foot  ! This is just a tip of the iceberg .Everyone I speak to has problems ,even getting surgeries to answer the phone is a problem. The health service has huge communication problems.I have come to realise this mainly because of my husband and son who are both vulnerable and need care. Departments do not appear to liaise.The lack of G P service is the straw that broke the camels back .I like many others dread the winter without being able to see a GP. face to face. They appear to have pulled up the drawbridge.My husband had to visit the  local minor injuries clinic due to no  doctors appointments.This clinic saw 115 patients that day so why can’t GPS still do face to face appointments? Is this the future of GP appointments.? I think G.Ps have changed their way of working to suit themselves .Help to get them back with face to face appointments.
