I Am Truly Upset

In England we are so lucky to have the NHS.

I work for the NHS - and love it.



However people are always complaining about it - especially the waiting lists.

Well, a colleague of mine's husband found out last month he needed a heart proceedure.  He was told it could be a year before he got his appointment, but as they said they could take a cancellation they were lucky and Freddie had his proceedure yesterday ... Yay (and all went well).

HOWEVER, when they got there just before 8 am they were the only ones there ... there were 5 slots.  About 20 mins late one of the others turned up, but the others never did.

So all these people who complain should see this, and the fact that 75% of the clinics I work in have at least one non-attending.  Routinely they are offered another appointment, and thus more money, more delay in waiting lists .

I don't often get political, but was just so annoyed about these other 3 missing people.
