Feeling thankful for the NHS
Just recently, as a family, we’ve been very grateful for the NHS. Between needing GP appointments, hospital appointments and A&E treatment, we are very aware just have such fantastic medical care.
All too often we hear horror stories of poor care, delayed treatment and neglect from our medical care givers but we have nothing but praise.
The most recent appointment was for my poor husband who fell backwards at work and landed badly on the base of his back. How he managed to get home, I will never know – because he STRUGGLED to climb the stairs and just didn’t know what to do with himself when regular ibuprofen didn’t ease the pain.
Yesterday meant a trip to A&E. I was terrified that he had compressed discs and trapped a nerve as he had lost the feeling in one of his legs. But after a 7 hour wait, an X-ray and a thorough examination, we discovered that he has serious tissue damage (and black and purple buttocks!) He was given industrial strength pain killers and some excellent advice and sent home.
Although it was a very painful 7 hours, sat in a busy waiting room, we are incredibly grateful that he wasn’t so badly injured that he was classed as an emergency and taken through sooner!
