As you know we're self-employed so our health is absolutely everything to us. We don't work - we don't get paid. It's as simple as that. So more and more these days we are seeing people criticising the NHS left right and centre. Sadly this is more about waiting times and staffing than it is about the quality of the staff and the lengths they go to keep us safe when we are at our most vulnerable. Just last year Katie's Mum had a wee heart scare and she was seen to so quick even though it was a weekend and the A+E was overflowing with urgent cases. We were tended to by friendly, warm and reassuring nurses and doctors who made us feel safe and not just another bother on a busy night. I myself had the wonderful pleasure of gout not so long ago and that ended with a quick trip to the emergency room. I was seen within a few minutes and in and out within a few hours. Just cannot believe how good they have been every time we've been there. And also our GP's round the corner from us at the Mill Lane Surgery are always awesome whenever we've been in there despite how busy they are. They've been fantastic. The nurses who take Katie's blood every month are brilliant even though Katie is a total needle-phobe. They are always reassuring and kind and mercifully quick!
Basically we've been through the system fair bit this past couple of years with health scares and lots of little things but generally we've always had this superb experience when being treated. I'm personally in awe of the quiet confidence and professionalism of our frontline staff. The ones we've met are all a credit to their profession and we are incredibly lucky to have been treated by them.
