Now I want to start by saying I respect every doctor, nurse and carer in the NHS.
However I have to question the state of the institution itself? Why? Well for the last few weeks I have had pain in my left elbow and tried several times to get into see my own Dr, well i finally gave in yesterday and paid a visit to my local walk in clinic.
I registered and the LED display advertised a 60 minute wait which I must say was accurate and after 59 minutes I was called thru, now although I was offered a diagnosis the Nurse practitioner did tell me tgat they were for acute injuries, so my mind asked 2 questions
- What do you have to do to see a doctor in the UK
- If they are there for acute injuries where does casualty fit into the system
That brings me to non-medical managers who make decisions on budgets, on what department can have what they sorely need, but I assume they’re on a salary probably a huge salary that is coming from the NHS budget at one level or another.
So why not get rid of non-medical managers and put that money where it’s needed I to the medical budget so that we, the tax payers of the uk can see a doctor in our own surgery without having to jump through hoops standing on heads supported on one hand?
Once again I respect every doctor, nurse and carer in the NHS but the system is FUBAR.
