I attended my annual consultation on the 6th March and was told that I was under medicated. I waited three weeks for the prescription to be electronically sent to my GP. Hearing nothing I contacted my Parkinson's nurse and requested she chase it up. Another week passed and I phoned the hospital to be told that it was signed off and was now with my GP. Today 5April I had a telephone call from my GP stating that they still had to liaise with my Consultant. I suffer with manic shaking when I will get the new Meds is anyone's guess. Does it take 4 weeks and counting is this normal procedure?
The health service is in a bad way you have to push hard your case ,
My neuro/nurse usually send to gp electronically (email) in about 3 days, I usually get a paper copy in a week or so. i spose that is the time their secretary who works 3 days a week processes the infomation.
so No not normal.
