NHS problems...

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Update - there's been a bit of movement on this!

Our GP was as hopping mad as we were!
He says, he didn't refused to prescibe the drug, he asked the neuro on several occasions, to clarify who would do the monitoring as here the guidelines say: an E specialist is to monitor closely within the first 3 months.

Anyways, the neuro has decided to relent and reinstate him back to his clinic - I think even he's realised this whole situation was not handled well! Image

Our GP will now prescribe the drug as the ESN (Epilepsy specialist nurse) has agreed to the do the monitoring - which was all he asked for in the first place as he's not an E specialist himself!

Now couldn't the children have played nicely in the first place??? Image

I'm just glad this resolved so quickly as from past experience, it's very stressful dealing with NHS issues - it kinda grinds you down.

Thank God for the E nurse - she's the best!

Let's hope the the drug helps - even a little would be good!

That's brilliant Marie, but they shouldn't have put you through all that in the first place.
it's bad enough when the 'professionals' don't listen to carers, but when they don't listen to each other/...............................
well done Marie
