I woke up feeling quite yucky and the thought of getting up to go have some blood taken did not thrill me.
Never the less I was not about to waste the appointment.
Whilst sat waiting a middle aged ( the age nor gender is really relevant) man started moaning about the centre and waiting time.
Now I can see his point in a way as he was 15 minutes late and he had to get to work but he was going into see the nurse at no cost.
|This is right next to Doctors.|
When his mother arrived he was in a bad way physically also his sheets were dirty and when his mother wanted to speak to his DR she had to join a queue at 7am get a ticket and basically hope she was lucky, day 2 she managed to see the Dr .
eventually after a lot of trauma Mum decided to move her son to a private hospital nearer to home.
Once having driven him for 6 hours she arrived only to find out her sons condition was worse than been told or treated for.
The cost is going to be £thousands.
Returning to my day I had bloods taken ended up speaking to then seeing a dr given a prescription and came home all this in a four hour period and free,
Going back to my initial thought about the man and my reason for this blog post , whilst I can fully appreciate that we live in a rush rush society, we need to be patient and understand that the nurses are there to help us and maybe her previous patient needed a bit more care. Later that day I spent half an hour with my GP then 20 minutes with a nurse it certainly makes me appreciate that I have a great Medical set up.
I know that the wider picture is not great and cutbacks affect us all .
sorry for wittering on .
I would like to say Thank you to all the staff at the Centre .
