LETTER – “Doctors must get back on track”


It’s not rocket science why people wait until 12 o’clock in A&E. What should people do when they cannot see a doctor? Doctors need to get back on their feet.

A very good GP once told me (who sadly passed away) that he would never diagnose a patient over the phone and that some people cannot properly express their symptoms to their GP.

Ringtone 111 is a joke here again, people diagnose over the phone.

I myself waited seven hours for an ambulance.

All A&E centers that have been closed, like Burnley, need to be reopened.

I don’t blame our wonderful NHS staff – what would we do without them?

Under what pressure they have to work!

The system cannot cope, patients are being moved everywhere to seek treatment from this hospital to this hospital and from this health center to this health center. Sometimes, sometimes not even in their own city.

Some people find it difficult to get there and spend a fortune on taxis. Trying to access patient transport is a nightmare. You need to be ready two hours before the pickup time and the round trip can take most of the day. Keep in mind that some of these people are elderly people with disabilities and maybe they are in pain or feeling sick, this is just not acceptable. Then Blackburn and Darwen build more and more houses. It is not to be believed! Where will it all end? Does anyone know how to run this country? I think my cat could do better.
