"OMG" Loverly "NHS"

Hi.

Good evening, well I'm in again & don't you just love the NHS.

This is my 2nd visit over the past 2 wks

Well having only stayed 1.5hrs in A+E but I spent 6/7hrs hidden out of the way.

I was eventually admitted at 12.30 last night now hidden in an old part of the hospital once closed.

The moral of my story is I had no Dc/ Meds for my Pain for 24hrs.

Well I hit the roof "Big Time"

I think that I'm back on "Planet Earth"

I'm still in this Loverly place for another night "Great"

Hi.

Yes I am back to "Normal" today. "Well may be not"

The nurses keep coming around & asking how bad my Pain is from 1 - 10.

I keep telling them that my pain is 10+ (Very Bad) they say they can't put the + on the PCs ??????

Hi Steve

I wear a med alert that I keep upto date with all my med changes, have created a template in Word, that contains all the current information, I then cut out and fold to fit.

Every time I go anywhere beyond our garden gate, I am wearing it. Has meds and dose rates, hospital number/consultants, GP and surgery contact details. The last time I was in hospital (8yrs ago), I made them check my records, and give me the right meds.

If you are able to, insist they check your meds with your surgery, and insist they are given. A few discreted about person and wallet, atleast means you have some comfort.

Good wishes, Hayesider

I work for the NHS we are very under staffed but we do our best. I very rarely get a break and sometimes have nothing to eat all day

I'm very sorry to include the staff on the "Wards"

They are "Golden"

1st class in my "Book"

I'm constantly telling them that.

Please Please except my apologies.

I hope that I haven't upset you.

Sorry

Hi Maisie 1 my husband is UCS (urgent care services) ambulance guy - the amount of times they have overruns is unbelievable - a lot of their time/ calls are to drug overdoses - drunks - people who have cut a finger - drug users and the overloads in A and E are due to a lot of these people clogging it - which makes it difficult for nursing staff and also folks like ourselves who are ILL - in fact I heard on the north west news the other day that a crew were called out to a seven year old who had difficulty breathing - they blue lighted and when they got there it was a DOG - hello - I think for these guys they should be charged for the cost of the Ambo just like the fire brigade do for stupid calls

Sorry for the rant and hope Steve is feeling better and had his pain reduced.

I agree Toolie charge these stupid people who waste NHS resources

No I know what you mean it's them and us. I believe we should all work 24/7 365 days a year. It's criminal that more people die at weekends than during the week. It need a good overhaul and new contracts

Hi Masie.

Well said that is so so true.

I agree that the NHS isn't perfect far from it, but it is still better than most countries have. We have people on here who have run out of insurance they can't get treatment. A lot of the problem is that if someone out of the EU I goes to hospital they do t ask for the payment straight away so in some cases it is not paid

Hi Massie.

Many thanks, yes you are 100% we do take it for granted. I had worked in it for 10yrs, this was the best time of my life. Unfortunatly I had to take early retirement. I was gutted at the time. Yes other countries don't have anything close to the NHS.

Thanks.

Steve.
