Recently I presented to my A&E with self diagnosed Sepsis. Was told I didn’t have a high enough News score to warrant further investigation in hospital and advised to see my GP. 48 hours later I was admitted and spent 2 weeks fighting to stay alive. The doctors I saw in A&E hid behind the protocol and failed to use their clinical acumen. This was only the 2 nd time in my life that I attended A&E the 1st aged 2 years with a fractured arm and hadn’t attended my GP for over 10 years. I Should have been taken more seriously.
Stop pandering to the lowest common denominator. Better to raise literacy standards and promote health education in schools.
Totally inappropriate. RCGP should be politically neutral. Certainly not democratic to ask for another vote. They are certainly not representing GPS, who may have as many disparate opinions as the rest of the population.
Still awaiting my email?
This is for ongoing care of a diagnosed condition. Noctors and proctors are not able to make a differential diagnosis when they are not even aware that diseases even exist.
Last. Man Standing should stand down. Or go work in Orkney for £80 per day!
I get multiple requests from patients in the 70 to 80 years old bracket, who have been denied NHS vaccine and wish to pay for it privately. But unfortunately there had been no supply since the summer. Yet another vaccine shortage!!
Would love to be able to vaccinate, but vaccine out of stock at GSK. Lots of issues with many vaccines unavailable. NHS E should address procurement urgently.
This government wants the NHS to fail, but wants doctors to take the blame and be the fall guys
Using the same reasoning, there will probably be no need for MPs and Health Secretary in the future since all policy decisions will be made by advanced computer technologies
