Getting A Flu Jab

Ten days ago, I got a text message from my GP’s surgery, asking me to make an appointment for a flu jab.

I have phoned several times since and have not got through successfully. As I also need a B12 injection and some more Warfarin, for which I might need a quick chat on the phone from my doctor, it is getting increasingly important that I get through.

Dr. Rosemary Leonard on the BBC this morning, said that there were a lot of people wanting flu jabs this year, so I may march in to Boots, as was selected in the text message.

Incidentally, why can the GP Surgery text me, but they have no simple way I can text or send them an e-mail from a form with Capcha to sort the bad from the good?

Healthcare and computing seem to have a match made in hell!
