Re: Need my B12 injection but GP closed for Covid 19

Final update. Had injection - was only patient there! Had to go through verbal check for C19 symptoms before being allowed in, GP in scrubs and mask and apologised for being a bit over the top. V relieved that they now seem to have a ststem for dealing with it. Discussed the Better You spray. GP off...

Re: Need my B12 injection but GP closed for Covid 19

Update: spoke to GP today and they are now running ‘clean clinics’ for infant vaccination, B12 injections etc. You and your family have to be completely free of C19 or any symptoms etc. I can apparently have an injection tomorrow. I will take along the ‘Better You’ methylcobalamin spray and see what...

Re: Need my B12 injection but GP closed for Covid 19

Thank you both and good to have that Hemel surgery contact - presume private so will be willing to do it for cash? Have now phoned my surgery (which is in Richmond) 5 times. Every time I explain the problem and ask to speak to a GP they say a GP or nurse will call me back but they never do. They’ve ...

Need my B12 injection but GP closed for Covid 19

Alarmed to discover that due to Covid 19 measures my GP is not only closed for face to face consultation but is not providing a practice nurse service so not giving B12 injections. Explained to receptionists that I have pernicious anaemia, can’t ingest B12 in any form so am completely dependent on t...

Re: MIL stayed for 2 months over Christmas and is back in 5 months

Unfortunately men very often allow situations to develop that they probably know are going to go down badly with their wives or partners and then just do nothing about it. I have every sympathy Bondi. Can your husband be persuaded to start the conversation with his mother about this? Maybe sit down ...

Re: Teen

Similar thing happened to my daughter around the same age. But the forthcoming Saturday game makes it extra awkward. Do you know the other girl’s mother well enough to ask her if her daughter wants to go after leaving your daughter off her party invite list? Explain your daughter is upset, you know ...

Re: Not been paid - suspicious employer

Our grownup son was in similar position recently. He went to a solicitor as the amount owed was a couple of months. Crucially they said he had to write formally to the company setting out the amount owed, that NI and pension needed also to be dealt with and make clear in the letter that he was in di...

Re: teenage boy staying over with girlfriend

Agree younger children complicates it. We said OK to stay at partner’s home if invited but said couldn’t have them staying at ours until they were nearer 18, especially as our youngest was nearly 7 years younger. They understood and I’m sure had sex at pur house the moment we went out! And agree abs...

Re: reusable nappies

I can’t recommend a brand as it’s a long time since I used them but I do totally recommend them! After using disposable nappies for my first two children I used a non-disposable service for the third and really wished I’d done the same previously. The nappies at the time were absorbent cotton square...

Re: INVITED GUEST HAS ASKED IF HER DAUGHTERS BOYFRIEND CAN COME TOO

Interesting. Have you asked your daughter if her friend wants to bring her boyfriend? Does she know your daughter’s boyfriend isn’t coming along? Or is the friend’s mother trying to help out the boyfriend’s parents for some reason do you think? Parents seem to behave quite badly in these situations....

Re: How do I get my overweight partner to lose weight?

Agree there is probably an underlying issue. My husband’s waistline also reflected a surfeit of City lunches for the best part of 20 years and he developed high blood pressure. But confronting it head on made him defensive and resort to ‘secret stuffing’. I found it was best to approach it as a heal...

Re: Best all round multivitamin for women?

If you have specific symptoms you should go to your GP for a blood test. Long term conditions such as Vit D deficiency or Pernicious Anaemia need prompt treatment. But agree with previous poster that multivits bit of a racket. Your body can’t store many of them so ‘superdoses’ may do more harm than ...

Re: Is anyone else feeling really fed up with the state of things right now?

Absolutely agree. Schools funding: all children are precious. They are our future. State schools make up over 80% of our educational system. How many children’s lives will be blighted by these cuts? Reporting: we are constantly told more people are ‘in work’ than ever before yet see more and more ho...

Re: Four stabbings and a fatal shooting marks bloody evening across Wandsworth, Clapham and Plumstead

Police numbers cut, fewer specialist armed police, drastic cuts to neighbourhood policing and cuts to youth clubs and youth service funding. What did the government think was going to happen? London and other big cities are bearing the brunt of this pointless and counterproductive austerity.
