An excellent mixture of humour and hard reality, under pinned by a series of open interviews with practitioners and senior managers. Excellent (and sobering) stuff8/10
Quote from: captainkurtz on March 22, 2019, 09:35:48 amWe take the NHS for granted. Had the worst week last week. Daughter had a seizure on returning from school on Monday. She was born at 24 weeks and has a really complicated medical history with a 'shunt' in her skull which allows pressure to be drained, if needed. We immediately thought there was an issue with that and panic ensued - I could not hold it together when I was on the phone to the emergency services. I could hear the sirens by the time I put the phone down. Amazing. Operated on the following day followed by a week in hospital with utterly incredible nurses and doctors. Back home now and back to school today and all is good.I cannot pretend to know the ins and outs of the NHS but it is the absolute lynchpin of a decent, civilised society. I'd happily pay more tax - as long as I knew the money could be ring fenced and used for the NHS...

Social care and the general "wellness" of the less privileged in society also needs to be addressed otherwise the demand for NHS services will keep rising. Compelling arguments.
