Hi,
Apologies if this has been covered, just wondering what the procedure is now for make an appointment with the Doctor you are registered with under GESY if they practice at Paralimni Hospital?

I turned up to make an appointment but was told my doctor's list was full today and first available appointment is 24th June, they would not let me see another doctor.

This was after I went to A&E on Sunday and they told me to visit any doctor for medicines! The receptionist was not interested. The system is now worse than the UK system.

Surely there should be a doctor there for the sole purpose of dealing with repeat prescriptions.? It is likely that there were some in your doctors queue for just that
I have never been able to understand why A&E suggest but never prescribe meds.
Left hand has never known what right hand is doing up there for quite some time.
A few months ago I was at my specialist for my six month check up , she got really concerned and sent me straight to A&E for tests. I was somewhat surprised to be asked for the ten euro whilst in a wheelchair and having been sent there but hey ho its only money . They did tests and then ... ..................... sent me back to the doctor for prescription ?? Go figure there were four doctors standing around why couldn't one of them do it .
Another aside , does anyone know what one does if your doctor is ill or on holiday ?

does sound like will be like trying to see your GP in UK. hope A&E can cope with the extra work. In UK i used to ring for appointment & none for over a week. they actually suggested going to the walk in centre. but as far as i know nothing like that here. think lots will end up paying to see doc privately which is not right as paying into GESY

getting prescriptions here is terrible. sat at hospital for 3 hours then they decided to ask who was just waiting for prescription & got another doc to just deal with that

They gave me an office phone number for the doctor, but I rang 20 times and he did not answer!

Nor sure of the procedure for changing doctors!

Believe you have to be with them for six months before changing

Hard work but worth it .
Talking of pharmacies , they too are having a tough time . Went to mine on Tuesday and she was in quite a state. The government had not stocked pharmacies with enough of many essential meds . She was on the phone to the doctor who prescribed asking for advice and he told her to ring the manufacturer!! Tried that and 9calls later still no one had picked up the other end . She was in such a state felt sorry for her and the patient ,as it was a really important drug
