Hard to get a doctor or specialist appointment?

0 Replies

The news is full of the lack of doctors in rural areas - is it true where you are? I'm a freelancer, researching a piece at the moment about the new government initiatives to entice medical students to take placements in rural areas, and I'm wondering if this if affecting many people already. One GP tells me that there are several areas with only one GP for 15 000 patients, which seems unthinkable - and unworkable. I'd love to hear genuine experiences. If you've had trouble finding a GP, signing n with one, or just facing incredibly long waits for a GP or specialist appointment, please do send me a line (here or messaging). You can be anonymous if you prefer, I just want to be sure I'm giving a true representation of the facts in different areas. Thanks in advance, AD
