Hello everyone and I hope you are keeping well x
Today we had a hospital appointment at our hospital. Our youngest has a slight turn in her eyes which needs attention so after waiting for five months for a appointment we were finally seen. The clinic was running being which meant we were waiting for four hours. (how I wish I had taken my knitting!) Not that I'm complaining about that. They are busy and do a great job so a little wait has become something we all expect. What my gripe is, is that while we sat there I overheard a conversation between a Doctor and receptionist saying that twelve people had either cancelled or DNA (did not attend) for that morning session. Now I know that emergency's crop up and life doesn't always go to plan BUT Twelve! I urge people to think very carefully before they cancel a appointment on the day its for. Waiting lists are so long that this would surely shorten them if the appointment could be offered to someone else? We have a Nation Health Service which is free unlike many other parts of the world. Its struggling as it is . Why not give them a helping hand?
Any hoo........... That's my thought of the day!
