My Doctor sent me a text saying I needed a blood test and to go to the local hospital or surgery to have this done. I wouldn’t dare go to the hospital as it is in a local town.
I phoned the surgery and got a long message about their preparations for rolling out the vaccinations, but not to call. Then saying what to do if you suspected Covid. Then the Head Doctor giving you all the different numbers to press, but none of them were for Blood tests or appointments. So I had no more options other than to go online.
Now I use by IPad and the Internet a lot but the different screens I had to go through were even off putting for me. I put in my email address, then my password, then I had to give 3 letters from my memorable word. Then I had to say which of 9 pictures had tractors in them. Then I had to find Online services, then scroll through for appointments, then had to find where Blood Tests could be booked. I eventually did all this and made an appointment for Tuesday at 9.23, so they are booking by the minute now. 😏
I suspect anyone of my age who is not conversant with Online booking procedures would have given up. I logged off, then got an email from the Practice saying someone had accessed my details. YES it was me !
