Just heard on news that there maybe hospitals closing .
This is not a clinical decision it was said but a financial one.
This is terrible. If you have say 3 hospitals in a defined space one maybe shut.
Imagine if you will if the nearest hospital to you is axed to save ££££ .
Already many 'local' hospitals have closed over the years so going for the next nearest hospital will be
a. Further away which means a bus (if you can manage them) or car/taxi.
b. This may mean longer waiting times.
c. A chaos of a car park. . Then there is the car parking charges!!!!
Oh bigger is better they have muted. But is it?
I need a wheelchair with volunteer to get me to clinics at a big area hospital, getting access to a hospital wheelchair is not easy.
I do not require use of a wheelchair around my home ,I cannot self propel.
Progress is not always improvement it seems. Closing some hospitals is not for the likes of us with sometimes multiple conditions.
