I've often thought of my body like a car, if something happens out of the ordinary or doesn't feel right more than usual then I'll make an appointment. I have paid through national health insurance so i intened to use it when needs must
Although on the last visit I noticed "regular user" at the top of the docs page on his screen. I asked him what that meant and he said it could be taken many ways but generally if there is an issue other than man flu type of things then it shows you will visit the surgery.
I think he was trying to cover his ass though
I have very little embarrassment when it comes to my body so if a doc wants to stick his fingers up my poo pit once a year to check for colon cancer then I see that as common sense
If he wants to do it any other time then I want drinks first
