Help finding a new GP s moving house.

Postby diane1 » Thu Nov 13, 2014 1:36 pm

Hi folks
I havent been around for a while for various reasons but am hoping once im moved and settled I can get back on.
Im moving to Little sutton in Cheshire in the next month and will have to move Gp surgery. My current Gp is brilliant and totally understands fibro. He has helped me with benefit claims, getting my works pension and just understanding. He has never refused me medication as he has seen me in good times and bad and knows the results of the meds on my quality of life instead of tne cost.
Im really worried I might get a Gp that doesnt understand or recognise fibro. I currently have a complex concoction of meds including morphine.
Does anyone know of a good fibro Gp in the little/great sutton area..

Thanks :yikes:

Diane.....I can relate to your situation. Our Dr of over 25 years has retired. The Dr Who took over his practice, well let's just say that my hubby walked out in the middle of his appointment. We have a new one who we feel is going to be fine.

It is scary. I was worried about her not wanting to give me the Fentanyl that I have been taking for years. It has turned out though that because of other medical issues I need to come off it. Not going to be easy.

Good look finding a DR and getting settled.

Hi Diane sorry I havent any advice on Little Sutton, have you thought of phoning the different surgeries and asking if they have anyone who specialises etc. It might give you some ideas :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:
