I've been suffering with an eating disorder & severe panic attacks, bouncing from place to place for the past 4 years. I wish I could find the quality of service I only ever get from Guy's A&E. I can't tell you how many times I've been misdiagnosed at Nunhead, which have plenty of doctors, but have left me with no choice but to do my own research online. Unfortunately I can't go to The Gardens surgery as it was previously owned by a close relative & have another close relative working there still (hence why I was kicked off the list). Many of the good doctors I used to see at The Gardens have left but I believe there are still a couple of good ones (which is more than I can say for Nunhead).
- I know this sounds a little off topic in regards to your initial post but my point is that even the surgeries with plenty of doctors seem pretty unqualified to be working in this field & makes me wish I followed my relatives footsteps in becoming a doctor myself.

If you have complaint about your GP surgery make a complaint to them.
If for whatever reason you don't feel able ot complaint directly with your GP surgery then email complaints or indeed compliments to - email@example.com or call them on 0300 311 22 33 during normal office hours.
I have made a complaint to them, and spoke to the practice manager there today. They seem very disorganised and do not have clear protocols for phone calls/messages etc, she did not seem at all interested until I reminded her they have a duty of care to patients. She did sort it all out quickly then
The last time I was involved as an East Dulwich Councillor DMC agreed an action plan with NHS England and it was tracked through to successful completion.
If it casques you continuing problems please complaint to NHS England.
I cannot understand myself how such a big place, has very few patients in the waiting room and very few drs lately...Also I am very angry that Dr ward for the second year running is on a year leave again... You get to see him he sends you for tests and then heís gone, and heís been our hope to get to the bottom of it..Most of the drs in there are new all the time . Why have a dr that is off for so long ....
Applepears, I couldn't agree more, where are the doctors, who is filling the consulting rooms??
I spoke to Dr Ward before he left, I did not get the impression he is returning this time, but perhaps I misunderstood.
I do hope you get some answers with your test and someone in the practice has taken over your case.
