Blood samples and the NHS

I saw a different consultant in July for a second opinion (he was in London and I live near Nottingham). Since I was diagnosed in 2006, I have had 2 MRI scans (the last one in 2009). He has sent me for another scan, and put me down to have 3 more blood tests (I have had over 30 already).

I went to the local G.P. yesterday to have them done. They didnt know which bottles they needed and didn't know how to send the samples to the consultant! They said they would contact me when they had the answers.

Now thats what I call service!

Needless to say I am rather peeved by this.
