I expect the lovely Sami may have received some calls from distressed patients and I am sure it can be emotionally hard going to receive such calls. So many people are doing the hard yards and are at risk from COVID or just job stress.
I need some new prescriptions from my doctor of 26 years. I don't feel the need to actually see my doctor, and I expect if I did I might burst into tears. That would be unfair on him. (That is probably a lie. Of course I would hold it together.......I think) I am sure he has enough to deal with, without a stupid old emotional queen in tears of pity for himself and the world.
So, I will put myself in the hands of reception staff to advise me about new scripts. Telehealth? Phone call? Video call? Just pick up your 'scripts? I will see what reception staff say tomorrow.
