Gwyneth’s Story

Over the past few years at the doctor’s surgery, I’ve felt that I’m not listened to and not getting the same treatment as someone a few years younger than me. They just give me extra tablets to placate me.

This makes me feel very frustrated – I feel that my notes were not being read and it makes me angry that everything is related to my age.

I haven’t felt able to do anything about this as it is a ‘closed shop’ and now I don’t trust what the doctors tell me. My experience with other doctors in the hospital was so different that it highlighted how bad my treatment from my doctors has been.
