how to find good GP after moved home

Postby fibro-lu » Tue Dec 21, 2010 9:00 pm


I move home in August 2010 and still see my "old" GP :oops:
I now fall outside of the surgery's bounderies :cry:
He knows me and we work well together :D

In the new area are plenty of surgeries :dunno:
Any idea how to seperate the good ones from the not so good ones?
What questions to ask them to find out if they are sympathetic and knowledgable etc ?
And any other tip you can give

thank you :wave:

Merry Christmas

hi lulu,

if you look up the different surgeries online there should be some information on the different doctors, including their special interests.
for example there is a GP at my surgery who has a special interest in muscular-skeletal problems. i have seen alot of the doctors at my surgery until i found one i was comfortable with.

good luck, adele xx :hugs:

Hi Lulu if there is a support group in your area, it might be worth asking other members about GP's as they will have first hand knowledge :hugs: :hugs:
