Hi Phil,

Have you asked your GP surgery if they are registered with the EMIS scheme? They are the key. If not, why not? And when?

Hospital records are separate and on paper.

Cheers, John

Hi John,

I went on the EMIS website and it says my surgery is not registered. I was there at the surgery this morning getting my first prescription for Mirtazapine for depression (damned HT) and didn't think to ask - .

I will have to pop in and see if they are considering registering - i presume it costs them to do it ?

Ta,

Phil

Update: after kicking off at the hospital again, email and calls to PALS, finally the doc in charge woke up and sent out the blood borm and reinstated the previously cancelled telephone appointment. All good then.

Well, not quite. The form arrived Saturday morning so call the GP to get the blood test done. Ahh, no appointments for the next 2 weeks but call back every morning as we get cancellations blah blah blah. Today is the last day to ensure the nurse has the results in 7 days so we drove to Pinderfields to have it done.

So maybe, just ,maybe I'm back on track.

Angry, can’t you nip with the form to a local chemist that does phlebotomy? We have a private nurse who will pop round your house for a tenner, take a sample and feed it into the NHS system.

She also runs a timed appointment clinic at the local church hall for a fiver.

Cheers, John

If it costs “them” we are bloody paying for it!
