    @pointless1 is there anyway you can tell the reception staff that it is urgent that you see her based on your history, and even ask if they can put you through to her? I really don't think doctors should allow themselves to get that busy, it's not fair on their patients to wait almost 2 months for a GP appointment! Good luck getting a new mental health plan, however you end up getting it.

I need a new mental health plan for my next appointment from my GP who is by far the best doctor ever & I adore. The problem - the next available appointment with her is not until the end of November. Not because she is away or anything, but because she is just that busy. I don't want to have to change GPs. She knows me, knows my mental health history & life story, has a special interest in mental health (also works part time at an associated part of the mental health service I am treated by as well as headspace) and is by a long way the best doctor ever. But I can't wait that long for an appointment.
    Ask to go on a cancellation list and then if you can ring up every morning right when they open to see if they have any emergency appointments for the day. My gp clinic is often booked out but they keep a couple of appointments each day for 'emergencies' and these are only available if you ring first thing when they open.

    Also as she knows your history can she prepare the referral without seeing you? Is that even possible?

    If you're going to stuff around at the very busy servo go inside and pay and move your car first some idiot who I was stuck behind waiting for the pump (b4 I lost my shiz and reversed out to another pump) was having a full on conversation with those w8nkers who stop you and try to sell you car polish. Including a freaking demo on his car. Then goes inside. Pays. Goes to the toilet. Goes back to talk to car polish guys. I had moved my car filled up and paid and he was still nowhere to be seen with cars lined up behind him it's petty but gosh it made me angry!

    can they not cancel someone and put you in as a priority? based on the necessity of your circumstances? seems very rigid to force you to wait.

    Why do husbands think they get to spend less time with their child than we do? Wish I could just duck out of the house on a whim. I've been with DS for 12 hours straight. Jerk.

    @pointless1, my old GP was the same. She often had 2 month waiting lists. There were a couple of times that I ended up getting in an urgent appointment, after her normal hours. The receptionist put me through to speak to the GP, and after about 2 minutes, she said to come in at 5 and she'd see me after she'd seen everyone else. She was usually running so late she wouldn't finish til 6. But I still had about 45 minutes with her.
    Could your psychiatrist write to the practice requesting an urgent appointment specifically with your GP? It might help.

    I swear I'm going to get my DP his very own tin foil hat. I've booked him in for a GP appointment to get a script for his whooping cough shot tomorrow. He stood in the kitchen tonight and expressed how uncomfortable he was putting 'God knows what ingredients' into his body via the vaccine.

    Ladies and gentleman, this is a man that smokes cigarettes that contain 400 plus different chemicals and drinks Rakija (Serbian plum brandy) like its water.

    He does not see the irony.

    Isn't rakija a cure-all? Couple of days ago someone told me to rub it on ds gums because he's teething. Umm, no thanks!
