Report Corona Virus in General Chat Posted July 21 It’s so difficult to get an appointment at my GP surgery, that I'm pretty sure a lot of people just hope that whatever they have is nothing too serious, and live in hope whatever it is will clear up. The online booking service has been in operation for years, but I’ve never once been able to book anything though it, apart from a repeat prescription. Forget the telephone, because every time I call I’m No. 48 in the queue. I find the only way is to go to the surgery and wait to speak to a receptionist.
