I never fully appreciated NHS when I was younger but we are so lucky to have it and should cherish and guard it.

 

Mrs had a miscarriage last year. Went for the 12 week scan showed fluid behind the baby's neck which we were told can be a sign of chromosomal abnormalities (downs syndrome and other rare syndromes) We were put in touch with fetal medicine to have further blood tests and a further scan showed that the baby had died. We were both devastated.

 

We then needed to have an overnight visit to RIE to deliver our dead son. We were given a room and the care we received was incredible. The midwives were really attentive to our situation. Even although we were struggling with the loss they made us feel cared for that really helped us get through it. So much respect for midwives now.

 

The Mrs is expecting again and our son will be here, all going well, in August. We've had additional tests and scans because of what happened last year and everything looks OK. 

 

Just need to look at the states to see how much a hospital visit could end up costing you. Absolutely mental. Even if you have insurance you might not be covered for certain things.

 

It needs to be taught in schools about its importance so that its not taken for granted by future generations. It may not be perfect but where would we be without it?

" The king and i" was a musical version of " anna and the king " really.   The Chow yun fat  Anna and the King was a remake of " anna and the king of Siam " with the great Irene Dunne. and Rex Harrison unbelievably as the King of Siam,. :)

Heartfelt story mate. My wee granddaughter was born Downs, and she will be 6 next week, and she also has autism. A wonderful loving happy wee soul she is, and the support we have had from the NHS has been exemplary. At the time of her birth we were devastated ( we really had nothing to worry about) and I think this was mainly due to our own ignorance and as it turned out she is the light of our lives. Sorry for rambling on and going of topic, but I would fight to my last breath to keep the NHS and any politician that tries to feck with it should be jailed IMO. Good luck on the arrival of your wee one I wish you and your wife all the best.

Thanks mate. 👍 

 

Yeah, it's amazing how often you see people with Downs and they're living life to the max and loving every minute of it. Then everyone else is miserable.

 

We were devastated at the thought of having a son with downs, but then when we found out he had died, we would've given anything to  bring him back, and the fact he had downs didn't matter one little bit.

 

I'm so glad that you're gran daughter is giving you and your family so much joy mate. That's lovely!

Similar to my sister in law, a still birth is a terrible thing, strength and best to the 3 of you.

My daughter is a NHS nurse, saw her on Sunday and never seen her as stressed following a shift. Just completed a night shift. Ward of 22, served by 3 nurses, 9 patients had Covid, 7 patients were on end of life care, one died during shift, single rooms so the 3 of them never stopped getting patients back into beds either because they fell out, climbed our or just decided to go for a wander. Called NHS bank for help, no help available.

Should be protected at all costs but used in a more sensible way.

 

Costing the NHS £10 a box to get a prescription for paracetamol is ridiculous when it costs 20p a box in the shops.

 

There's a lot that could be done to make it less costly. 

 

We simply can't and shouldn't risk losing it.

your point still stands, but that’s usually a box of 100 paracetamol.  Still verges on extortion. Not to mention the GP time wasted to get said paracetamol. 
 

NHS needs a fit for purpose procurement system. They get tied into  contracts for things you can get in Poundland at 1/10 of the price. Stationary is a prime example.

 

I can’t fault the NHS for any treatment I’ve received. I think most NHS staff would prefer an increase in staff numbers over any pay rise.

Well they kept my grandfather alive for 20 years longer than he should have been with the leukaemia he had.

 

My father they treated for cancer successfully.

 

My mother they treated and saved her from cancer.

 

They looked after my grandmother brilliantly through her dementia.

 

They acted quickly when they found a lump on me and cut it out to send away for testing.

 

Among hundreds of other things I can be thankful for. 

 

 

When it comes to blaming the NHS for things. Is it the actual NHS to blame? Was it a problem with the actual system?

 

Or was it the fault of a few doctors who aren't very good, which can and does happen everywhere?

 

A long waiting time caused by a self entitled public who think they deserve free treatment for a runny nose?

A broken system due to years of underfunding and cutbacks. Closure of community hospitals resulting in a reduction of bed numbers added to a reduction in social care packages mean so many beds are tied up by bedblockers(those fit for discharge but unable to be discharged due to having nowhere to send them).

 

Never seen so many stressed nurses on wards being forced by bed managers to discharge patients not fit for discharge just to free up beds.  Never seen so many failed discharges where those sent home return to hospital within days(sometimes within hours) of discharge home.

Anytime I have require treatment I received brilliant care. Had my appendix burst and needed emergency surgery for that, had testicular torsion when I was younger and needed emergency treatment for that. Got my gout in my foot sorted out. 
 

So aii all good here. 

Was in hospital (western) with the auld appendix, on a drip and a drain to get the infection out, was 16 and had the missfortune of making a mess in the bed, nurses were spot on, great care.

NHS National Procurement in Scotland is more than fit for purpose, in fact it's better performing than pretty much any public procurement function in the UK.

 

Stationery is actually great example, a pen from poundland might a 10th of the price but it only lasts 1/10th of the time, has twice the failure rate and no choking hazard safety hole, not to mention poundland can't deliver at all far less to the 300 NHS sites across the country at specific times so as to not clash with other deliveries and especially not to the western isles, orkney or shetland.
