Just Jot It January : Random post while helping a friend

Well this is different sitting here in  an NHS walk in center. It is so quite I cannot believe how pleasant it is. There are only about four patients with relatives here. We are here to help a neighbour who has fallen out of a tree, yes fallen out of a tree.

Not the tree in the photo , a big tree in fact he fell at least 15ft to 17ft.  and got up and carried on, and on not actually seeking any medical advice until the next day.
He tried to see his GP (general practitioner) who spoke to him over the phone . You have a real hard time getting to see a doctor  these days. If you manage to get past the receptionist you get a call back from the doctor. Who decides over the phone what is wrong with you. Yes most doctors now have extra sensory perception and can make informed diagnosis over the phone.
Unfortunately for the patient many surgeries tell you to ring when you need the doctor, the doctor will then ring you back and decide how to proceed. This sounds like a good idea in theory but in practice it often means that though you may speak to a doctor you can go months without ever seeing the doctor in person .
Any way here we are sitting in this pleasant place. Our friend was called in within the half hour he was told was the wait.

As you can see the surroundings are pleasant, there is even a coffee shop, unfortunately closed as it closes at 5pm and it is now 7.20pm. So all we can do is wait and hope we do not have to take a trip to casualty or the ER as our American friends call it. As that would be a completely different story.
I kid you not Casualty is a whole different story. You can wait 6 hours or even much longer. They are crowded and stressful places.

Right now  finally  he has  been  seen  and his  is free to  go  home,  with kind  reassurance of a  proficient doctor, a  prescription in hand  and  us in  tow. Home  , dispensary then  home. In to  our  friends  for dinner! Then  home  by 9pm. The Hubby  who is still not well suffering in  silence  not  let  anyone  know  how  tired  and in pain  he is.

 

I am so tired I am going to have to say  goodnight, this is  almost like one of  Linda’s SoCS posts!
