HOW SAFE ARE OUR GP PRACTICES during covid-19? For the health care professionals, their patients, and families of patients?
I'm a 65-yr old diabetic needing routine B12 injections.
My GP tells me to turn up as normal so I don't develop neurological problems.
I don't think anyone in the practice has been tested for covid-19.
I'm refusing to turn up since I suspect the GP practice to be a covid-19 hot-spot. I don't want to transmit this virus to my frail, elderly asthmatic husband who's undergone cancer treatment and a lot of surgery.
I've persuaded the GP to give me a precription for oral B12.
Have I done the right thing?
How can I help GPs and patients in far worse dilemmas than mine?
