I had a reassuring conversation with our contact at the BMA. We have all been deeply disappointed that the Dept of Health has refused to fund a helpline. The BMA will continue to press for this nevertheless. It was nice to talk to someone rather than just exchanging emails all the time.
I received correspondence from GP practice today. Last saw GP 4th June. Asked for out of region referral. Posted official complaint to practice 4th July. I see referral request is dated 7th July. This is truly shocking.
