Had a stroppy letter from the NHS choose and book mafia today
Complaining that I have not been responding to their calls and letters (mainly cos I'd never had a call or letter prior to today)
Telling me to ring urgently to make an appointment
I was fascinated, what wonderful Star Trek style diagnosis and referral technology the NHS must be using, and how great that they can tell I need to see a consultant when I have not actually seen an NHS GP or doctor (about myself) for what 4 or 5 years now. When I've been ill it's always been impossible to use the NHS even for a simple GP appointment so I've gone private in recent history. And I don't think I've seen a private GP for ages now.
So I rang up, confirmed my ID, oh how funny. They think I have a whole bunch of illness and have been referred by my GP. Sadly for them I don't, and the useless "too many tweets" NHS GP has never seen me, as a patient, so quite where such a magical diagnosis came from I have no idea.
So I pointed this out to the lady wasting my time and phone bill from choose and book, and of course she blamed the GP.
I feel sorry for the real patient who really does need to see a consultant who this useless bunch of idiots have let down. No doubt they will lie about events if the patient complains about his late referral.
