NHS, Here is a issue. I heard plenty of negative things about the NHS and always put them down as bad luck, poor management etc, etc, but today ive changed my views to ‘just not working’ My brother-in-law a very fit 50 year old landscspe gardener was doubled over in pain, sweating uncontrolably and as white as a sheet. We phoned for an ambulance, having answered their questions we were told he didnt need an ambulance and to contact NHS Direct. we did so , answered their qustions and was told to leave it for 3 days and if the he did not improve to contact his GP?. We helped him to the car, which caused his pain to reach new hights, but got him to QE at about 2pm. The hospital story could go on forever, a few of the highlights, ‘I can’t give pain relief, I’m not an NHS employee’, ‘we dont trust their blood tests, we do our own’ ‘you need an urgent scan, but they closed at 5’, ‘we will get him up to a ward ASAP’ etc,etc. Its 12.45pm the day after, he is in A&E with a blocked Kidney, and a family very worried and working out if we should go private (if we can afford it)
