The sad state of aged care in the ACT is a rant for another time, however, having just negotiated the challenge of finding and moving my mother from her home in Tuggeranong to a care facility in Belconnen we come to the next major hurdle.
The facility strongly prefers that she have a GP that will visit her in the home. Her existing GP, from Gordon, won’t visit her and, having gone through a list the home gave us, and over 30 phone calls later, we’re still no nearer to finding one. Most are taking no more patients at all (even in the surgery). Some will only visit if she was already a long term patient.
So, we’re appealing to the collective knowledge of the RiotACT readership! Any information would be appreciated!
