I'm sorry :-/
It shouldn't really take 1 week to see a GP though. I've usually been able to see a GP on the same day on a semi-urgent basis. Tell the receptionist you can't wait a week and you want to see a GP - any GP - ASAP.
Or alternatively, can you use your US insurance to get private treatment here?
Otherwise, it does sound like you've had very shabby service up to date. It's not always like that on the NHS... But it certainly can be :-/
