dear Lisa,
:hugs:
don't know what to say :(
this is so unbelievable cruel :cry: :swear1:
one of those: "it was too good to be true" I suppose :yikes:
can you get a copy of your medical records from the surgery? to see what she was writing? :pcsmash:
DLA is already a pain but to be kicked by your surgery is awful :tongueout: :face-slap:
do you know where she moved to? :penguin:
wishing you all the strength you need to appeal and to win! :blowkiss: :flowers:
all the best :cow-wave: Lu

I am in the same position as you :( I have been with my surgery since I was Born 53 years ago and I have had the same Doctor for 20 of those years. I suffer with Primary Lymphoedma, Fibro , Hypothyroidism and (probably because of these) I suffer with Anxiety, Depression and panic Attacks! I also can't take Nsaids or Opioids because I am allergic to them :(

I suffer severe pain and my mobility is very poor, and I have been this way for several years . My Doctor as been wonderful over the years and as supported me all the way , that was until I was turned down for ESA again, and I am going to appeal. I asked My Doctor for help and asked him for a report ,but he told me to go to CAB for help and just wrote a brief note listing my illness's! He could see I was very distressed and increased my fluoxetine, and put me on diazepam to help me cope. I left the surgery feeling totally alone and completely deflated! The one person who could put this injustice right, was not willing to!

I decided to request my medical records, which cost me £10 for the computerized ones and I will use this as evidence in my appeal .

I really don’t know what is going on with Gp's , and I wonder if the Government as threatened them in some way, but this is totally out of character for my Doctor!

.... forgot....
when I needed a GP's report,
first GP said to me to write it down "keywords" and then he would write a report
when it was time to actually write the report he said he didn't have time for "that"

I too paid £10 for my med rec and used this to back up what I would like to have in my report
so I wrote down what I would like him to write and
handed it over to him at my next appointment (or gave it to the receptionist? can't recall)

the report came back nearly word by word, signed etc
one copy for me, one copy for whichever company was asking for it

some things are better done by myself/ourselves
all the best :cow-wave: Lu

there was something somewhere were someone explaint what you can use your DLA for and what not
like:

Hello I've been around a while and written a few times but really I'm new fibro - I also have arthritis in my spine and hands.
I am really sorry for you with DLA. I had ESA for 1 year, but had it stoped after an examination by ATOS, so I sympathise with you. I have been refused even with a report from the Occupational Health Doctor for the Council, which awarded me a full pension, as they said they could never offer work of any kind due to my condition! Its all such a mess and I know how stressed and ill I felt, I wish I had an answer for you. Good luck sorting things out.

Hi Lisa

Its disgusting the way you have been treated, so all that time you were seeing the registrar although she was typing something into the computer it obviously wasnt related to you. It even made me think was she catching up on her previous patients and was she in fact even listening to you at all it really makes me cross.

Because time is very limited at a gp appointment my gp asked me to write out how i was affected by the different illnesses i have and what care etc i have in fact everything related to my disability and the more information i could provide the better report they could complete and it also meant that any gp could do the report as they could all view my notes. So i went away and got it all typed up and there were 8 typed pages in the end. My gp was shocked at just how bad things really were and she scanned this information to my notes as she felt it was important and especially for medical reports.

My gp commented that they are asked to complete reports such as these which is wrong because they get 10 minutes to see each patient and it takes that and can be longer to diagnose and treat the problem. No time is given to discuss how these different problems affect a patients day to day life even though they are aware that help is required, they also find that patients are reluctant to discuss that they cant cope or need help so without me writing the report that i did. My gp had no idea how i managed day to day although she was aware that i needed some help. She was shocked as to how i do manage and was disgusted that my family and friends had to do the majority of it due to financial reasons.

It could be well worth you doing the same as i did Lisa and get them to scan it to your records and then it doesnt really matter who completes your report as this can be viewed by everyone. In fact it might be worth you trying to get it done for the next time you go in.

It's ridiculous that we have to go to such extremes to try and get the help we need. There should be a limit on the age of reports that can be used for claims as so many conditions can change dramatically and new ones can develop/be dx'd over a relatively short period of time :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:
