    Getting all I need is an experience in itself! Solicitors- doctors not getting things right - having to go into a department in agony as you are fed up of phoning and getting no where in a year ! - am trying to get help but it’s hard work and I only have so much energy and motivation- but I keep going

    Hello @sylvery1 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry to hear you have a bad time. May I suggest if you are having problems with Doctors and considering it is a struggle.

    Have you thought speaking to an advocate.  This is a person who is nominated by you to speak on your behalf.

    What you wish to say and add.  Understand no one should be placed into a situation like yourself.

    Coping with Solicitors and Doctors plus other professionals. Have a look on the NHS website for further information.

    Another one to contact is AGE UK have a look on their website. Something to consider. Hate to see any lady struggling. From a  gentleman.

    0800 055 6112

    Have a look on line. Hope that helps.

    Pleasure to meet you.

    I used an advocate for Doctors any time I having problems with them not listening to me.

    Take care
