On the front page of the telegraph today Health Minister Mr Howard slated the NHS computer system.
I have been experiencing extreme shortness of breath to the extent that if I walk upstairs I have to collapse on the bed for five minutes with heart and head pounding. Wonderful hubby decided to try and find the reason. Yesterday morning he told me I’m suffering from low red blood cell count. I agreed this was probably the cause so phoned the nurse who said she would pass this on to the doc. Within an hour she phoned me back telling me to go and get a blood test. I duly had the test at 11.45. By 1.45 she was back on the phone to confirm and had booked me in for another blood test today and a transfusion tomorrow.
I have to say the NHS in my area are wonderful and their computer system seems to be first class.
Thank you NHS and hubby.
