Just thought I'd share this
Phoned the GP Monday, said I wanted an appointment. Told the receptionist (Maria, she's nice) what was up and she asked me did I want to come straight down and see the practice nurse that afternoon.
Couldn't make it so booked an appointment for 3pm Tuesday
Turned up, she got on the phone to Hope Hospital and arranged for me to be seen the next morning. 9am appointment. Turned up there at 8.40am, called in early at 8.50am, seen by a top specialist, podiatrist and my own diabetes specialist nurse as well. A minor surgical procedure done and sent home with a pretty surgical boot, follow-up appointment in 7 days plus dressings and other stuff to keep me going. Out by 10am.
All that lot within 48 hours of the first phone call to my GP surgery.
Someone please tell me why we should trust the filthy Conservatives with their no-longer-hidden agenda of £35bn and more in cuts to public services.
