A few weeks ago I went to my GP surgery for my 6 monthly routine check. When the results of my blood tests came through I was asked to go back for a repeat of my ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate). I had already noticed that my GP an Indian doctor had not seen me since the covid pandemic. I mention his ethnicity because BAME are at more risk than whites. Because of my history of pulmonary emboli, I was called back again for D dimer tests. The results of these tests were high readings in both tests. My interactions were with the practice nurses only. My feelings were that they didn't understand either of those tests fully, but I thought they would consult with the doctor. Yesterday 23rd March at 8.30am I received a phone call from the nurse, asking me to go to the hospital immediately. I drove to the hospital and arrived there about 10am. I finally saw a doctor at about 12.30 pm. I told him I was an ex medical rep so he showed me his computer screen, which had my blood results on it. Then he showed the results ADJUSTED FOR AGE. on it. My blood tests were quite normal for my age (86). What a waste of time and money for the National Health Service. When I got back from the hospital I phoned the nurse and asked her if she had shown the doctor the blood results, and she said yes. I am wondering if the doctor will apologise for his incompetence, but I won't hold my breath.
