I so can relate but don't give up - miracles do happen as I can finally breathe a sigh of relief that after four years by an absolute fluke I found an end to my GP dilemma. My husband found out about a new GP in Victoria almost 2 years ago, I called & put my name on a wait list (they were still taking names then), and to my absolute astonishment I got a call a couple of months ago saying my name had come to the top of their list and was I still looking for a GP.
I jumped at the chance and made a meet & greet apt then and there.
So it can happen and I sincerely hope that it will happen for you.
