    Default Our NHS Is So Fantastic...

    I've had a bit of a fright with my Colin this week

    He's just spent the last 5 days in hospital... very long story.... I thought I'd lost him Tuesday night... even longer story

    I just have to say that when he 'crashed' Tuesday night I have never seen so many people descend on him so quickly, there must have been 7 or 8 nurses and/or doctors working on him within 15 seconds of the 'shout for help'

    What a marvelous NHS we have, I have nothing but praise for them

    It made me think about the nurse 1% pay increase with incredulity, made me quite cross

    I met Colin once, when you both came along to collect the AN amp. Decent chap, with good approachable nature.

    I wish him well.

    I probably should not have aired this on here but sometimes it helps to share...
