I'm hoping that someone can give me some advice. Long story cut short, my 20 year old son is covered from head to toe in a severe rash, probably psoriasis. Its even in his scalp. it's affecting him both physically and mentally. , This started in May last year, various creams were prescribed to no avail. GP referred him to Dermatology in about June. A letter arrived with an appointment at a health care centre for July, we arrived to be met by a nurse who took the family history-He had already given that to the GP, she took some photographs and said she'd email the Dermatologist. A letter arrived a couple of weeks later saying that the photos weren't clear and diagnosis unclear but he would be referred to Dermatology clinic. Another letter has arrived, the appointment is at the same health centre to see a lady and the name is given. Her name is not on the GMC site so I doubt she is a doctor. The name is unusual and I have googled her name and she appears to be some sort of health care practitioner. I have no problem with health care practitioners but my son needs to see a doctor, a specialist as a matter of urgency. My son rang the health centre and asked if she was a doctor and the person on the phone said that she was. I doubt she is. I don't know where to go from here, should I make a complaint?
