Im in kilmarnock does anyone know of any GPs that have a particular interest in Fibro or have made it their mission to be knowledgable about this "illness" for the sake of their patients I desperately need to move surgery but im reluctant to move in case its worse its not even due to any of the Drs I see its the receptionists I cannot take their attitude any more ive been at that surgery since birth it was one of the retired partners who delivered me so they have all seen me going from a full time working nurse to a wheelchair housebound pain ridden middle age woman they reduce me to tears would never offer to help if ive got things with meds mixed up but when they mess up ive to sit with no meds for days, responsibility/power do they know the difference?

I've split you off from where you had originally posted and moved you into here as it's a more suitable board for what you're asking about.

There are a couple of things you to try to see if there is a suitable GP at another surgery. Firstly, see how many surgeries there are in your area/within easy access for you. When you have this info, contact them and ask them a few questions. Start off with something like do they have any patients registered with FM, CFS/ME or other similar conditions. If the answer is yes, then ask if there is a particular GP who tends to see these patients, or has an interest in such conditions. If this answer gives you a name, then you could ask about what would be involved for a patient to move/transfer there. If it helps, create a scenario for yourself, such as you're moving into the area soon and are looking for a suitable GP.

Alternatively, see if there are any support groups in and around your area. If there are, try contacting them about suggestions for surgeries/GPs that might be suitable, or even to avoid if necessary.

Your practice should have a manager and its your right to complain about your treatment, receptionists are there to smooth the way to the doctor not make life as miserable as they can, but I know what you mean there are a couple at our surgery but fortunately for us the others more than make up for them
