A MESSAGE from Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH).
“We are experiencing a high demand for our emergency services. Please consider alternative services if you do not have a life-threatening illness or injury.
Our teams are here to help you, so please treat them with respect and kindness”.
If only people could see a GP. We have given the NHS everything the last 2 years at massive cost to wider society and they still fail us Can we accept now they are not angels but people doing a job (some great, most average some below average) and the NHS as an institution badly needs reform
Yes!!! If GPs saw patients face to face and treated them , they’re would be so much less demand on the hospital . People are ending up in A&E for symptoms that can definetely be managed by GPs
People need to be reminded that their local pharmacist can help with a huge range of ailments, injurys & illnesses. They can also prescribe medications, dress wounds & offer invaluable advice & offer solutions. People are too quick to attend A&E when a quick trip to their chemist may save them the hassle.
Visited PAH today for an appointment as a result of a referral only a few weeks ago. Excellent. Thanks and much praise to Church Langley and Nuffield Hse practices and PAH. Shows what's possible due to their dedication and hard work even in these difficult times. Time the government stopped faffing around and worked towards improve matters by progressively reducing shifts to 8 hours, extending training to many more staff, and paying decent wages (rather than relying on doctorsfrom abroad). Perhaps if government ministers and all MPs and their families could only use nhs services (rather than private healthcare), were only able to use public transport or bicycles ( rather than government chauffeur driven cars) and maintained local schools for their children whilst in office, we might see some improvements.
