Maybe people are moved around more as they are employed by the NHS as opposed to German health professionals being self employed when they have their own surgery? Idk.

Or it IS you :P

I have had the opposite problem - the gp's tend to leave and the psychs tend to stay the same. I saw a different psych when I first got ill and he is still there. Whereas my gp has left earlier on this year and I have no idea who is currently my gp because I rarely visit the gp. When I was living with my parents I rarely saw the same gp twice as they kept on changing.

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 12:19 PM

Maybe they do move around a bit in the nhs.
I could also be me :p

I've seen a few different GPs at my surgery but I've settled on one because she's really good.
Although the surgery has changed around a lot now as it was called Dr K and partners but Dr K must have left because they've changed the name of the surgery and my GP is now the senior partner.

I was meant to see my cc this morning but I forgot to set my alarm so I missed the appointment :/

I was meant to go swimming but I slept through my alarum clock. Which was a blessing in disguise because my parcel came (I wasn't expecting it today) & normally I wouldn't be in at that time. I also feel quite rotten so it's probably a good thing that I didn't go swimming.

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 01:35 PM

Shame about swimming but I'm glad you got your parcel! It's so annoying when you miss a delivery!

Good afternoon everyone.

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 03:10 PM

HI Lorraine! How are you?

Sketchy 23-11-2016 03:19 PM

I'm still freezing and in need of a distraction. How are you?

not_so_insig 23-11-2016 03:25 PM

Hi Lorraine.

I had an additional landline phone in my parcel.
I had a bit of a panicky moment because wouldn't work and I had no idea where the manual was so I had to Google the manual. Turns out I had to register it to the existing system so once I did that it worked fine (I used bt test line to double check). Only the one it's supposed to be replacing has now decided to work after about 2 weeks of deciding not to.

Sketchy 23-11-2016 03:27 PM

Hi Dawn. Glad you got your phone working.

tiptoes 23-11-2016 03:56 PM

*sits quietly in the corner*

Glad you got your phone working. It is always the way that things start working when you replace them! At least you have a back up now!

not_so_insig 23-11-2016 04:01 PM

Yes that's what my mum said tiptoes. I don't want to replace the whole system as it's less than 2 years old and also it's a call blocking phone so I don't get bothered by ppi/scam numbers.

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 04:02 PM

It's not that cold here today. But still cold enough for heating and blanket!!

Glad you got your phone working Dawn!

HI Sarah! Welcome!

Buttons. 23-11-2016 04:33 PM

Hey everybody :)

It's semi cold here, but because my landlord has decided not to fix the heating which was a bit of a sod when I moved in over a year ago so hoody and blanket ftw.

In other happier news Jodi Picoult's newest book arrived today and it's awesome *geeky sque*

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 04:37 PM

How can he not fix the heating? I'm pretty sure it's a requirement or something!

I've never read any of her books.

It is and my social worker keeps nagging and he keeps basically avoiding her/me/life except when he sends one of his little minions round to check I haven't destroyed the house :P

Our friendship is over. Unless you read one of her books and enlighten yourself :P

tiptoes 23-11-2016 04:49 PM

I love her books! I've only read a couple although I have many I haven't gotten around to reading!

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 04:52 PM

Ugh that's ridiculous Katy!!
As tight as my last landlord was (did all the home 'improvements' himself) he still managed to get the boiler fixed within a week.
I hate it when they send the minions round! Well, the one she sends is actually quite nice and overlooks the fact that I smoke, even though I NEVER smoke in the house so it shouldn't really be an issue.

I don't read much anymore. Concentration is *****!
But maybe I'll give it a go!

Can we swap? My minion is a git who doesn't look old enough to vote :P

Also would strongly advise trying one of her books *sits in a corner and nags quietly*

Fab :) which ones have you read?

Cacoethes 23-11-2016 05:11 PM

Haha! Well she did used to complain about my housekeeping for a bit but I'd been in hospital for months so the place was a tip! It gets dusty sooo quickly!

What kind of genre are her books?
