28% of Britons have recently experienced a medical issue that they thought was significant enough to warrant a GP’s attention, but which they did not speak to a GP about. This worrying statistic was highlighted in a recent survey conducted by YouGov and it begs the question – are we in danger of becoming a nation of ‘doctor dodgers’?
The survey looked at 585 Britons who had experienced a health concern within the last six months. Each one was asked to give a reason for not making an appointment with their GP. The results were eye-opening, to say the least…
What’s even more worrying, is that for 16% of those who thought they needed to see a GP but didn’t, their condition worsened a month later.
When it comes to medical issues of any nature, it is always best to be seen as soon as possible. Listen to your body – even if it’s just a niggling feeling that something isn’t quite right, don’t be a ‘doctor dodger’, get it checked out. It could be absolutely nothing – in which case you can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing for certain. Or it could be something that requires further attention – in which case early detection could give you the best chance of making a full and quick recovery.
