  3. The NHS

    13 January 2017 - 04:34 AM

    In the UK we have a national health service. I know some other counties don't and the idea of having one is contentious. This isn't a political post however. Please let's not get into Obamacare.

    I just wanted to sing the praises of our NHS. This week the headlines are full of doom and gloom about how funding cuts have created a humanitarian crisis in the NHS. Specifically this week.

    On Sunday night I had no sleep. I was in pain, not a lot of pain but one of those relentlessly annoying pains, like toothache. It was under my right arm and by the morning there was quite a swollen area.

    On Monday morning I decided I needed to see a doctor. This means waiting until the GP opens at 8.30 and calling quick but I needed to leave the house before that. We headed off in the right direction but decided to go to the "minor injuries" walk in at a local hospital.

    They were great. I had an issue with a sweat gland called hidrodinitis. They quickly arranged for me to see the surgical team at Pembury hospital (much bigger hospital, less local but still fairly close). I expected to see them and go on a waiting list for something to happen.

    By 8pm on Monday evening I had had surgery under general anesthetic and having demonstrated that I was ok to walk about etc they let me go home. I have had to take the week off.

    This wasn't an emergency (to me), just very uncomfortable. All the people I saw that day were cheerful, helpful, didn't seem to be struggling at all and provided me a fantastic service.

    In the recent past I've said some negative things about our NHS. At the time they were reasonable things to say given my experience but right now I have to be thankful for this amazing service and to all the people who work to make it what it is.

    Thanks Queen Victoria Hospital, thanks Pembury Hospital, thanks to the NHS.

    His name is Keith Turkington. Remember this was a few years back, so his charges maybe more now.
