Last Month:

GPs' surgery: Hey, sign up for online appointments and repeat prescriptions.*
Me: Okay


Try to use it for a repeat prescription for the first time
System: You have no repeat prescriptions available.


Me: Hi, I tried to get a repeat prescription and it wouldn't have it.
Surgery: Ah, that's because it's a controlled drug and the system doesn't handle those.

It's the only bloody prescription I have! Talk about being as much use as a chocolate teapot!!

* That was the occasion when the receptionist took one look at my handwriting and decided to fill in the form for me.

Aieeee. No write-in request option? My GP's system offers me my irregular-repeat sumatriptan or a write-in box. Admittedly I haven't had reason to try out the latter yet.

I will say that online appointment-booking for non-urgent stuff is really handy. I always seem to remember that kind of thing on the way home from work, or at bedtime, so at least I can log in and get it in the calendar. Annoyingly my GP's system doesn't have the nurse appointments in it, so things like blood tests, vaccination etc (which I also tend to forget about during office hours) I still have to ring up for.

Mine doesn't have write-in, either, so I can't do anything about the repeats that don't show on the system.

Infuriating electronic medical record software is one of my town's major industries. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with More Shit.
