Hi Zhuk! Real waste of NHS money, costly consultant sitting there all day, not treating any patients.
He also said ' We are not interested in symptoms, only the liver'
I said 'What if the symptoms concern the liver'?
He just stared at me and asked me if I've read much.
My response 'I've been reading every day for the last 18 months but I am not a Dr'
He was basically saying, they will no longer check you out either,
So if you have any HepC complications, forget being looked at.until they make you so Ill they can no longer ignore.
He told me to 'go to my GP.
Felt like saying 'I did, and he referred me to a hepatologist' but managed to keep quiet.
My old hepatologist was lovely, It seems they are laying off the older, more qualified & experienced Drs and replacing with young, txt book less qualified types to sit in the hospital all day telling patients they cannot treat them yet.
Don't believe what your read about dental care here, if you live in a town and are not lucky enough to have a good NHS dentist for years, you will pay double the price of most other Euro countries for a private one.
When I've got rid of this virus, a trip to Spain, Germany or Poland etc to fix my teeth .
There may be a few NHS dentists around, but they're not the dentists you'd choose to visit!
