I phoned the doctors and got through at the first attempt. I am sure that must be a world record and I am waiting for my gold medal and a mention in the Guinness book of records. I am not taking a pop at my doctors, they do a great job. I am just pleased I managed to get through and without stress and hassle. I can remember as a child how difficult it was to get a doctors appointment the receptionist at our surgery saw it as her personal mission in life to interrogate every soul who dared to try and bother the doctor and disturb her surgery. We have come a long way in the last fifty years but it is still hard to make a doctors appointment.
