Who Said the NHS don't care or is rubbish....

Thu Dec 11, 2008 9:08 pm

Hiya,

Errrr just something i just feel like saying to be fair... i already said it to the surgeon/consultant who phone me today that i was thankful and appreciate all that she has done.

As some of you may or may not know.. last week i had an operation to remove 2 parts of skin from my face and chest, due to suspected skin cancer again. I’ve had 2 ops like this before.. the last time was 4 years ago and all though the results came back positive (you may have seen the small scare on my right cheek), but they managed to remove it all in time before it spread leaving me in the clear...

Well last week i had another op as i just said but it takes 3 weeks for results to come back if it’s negative or positive and what the next course of action is. My new consultant/surgeon for past 2 years has been lovely, and even though problems happened during the op, hitting a blood vassal and couldn’t stop bleeding for 30 mins and went into shock, she was lovely and had it all under control.

But anyway... since the results don’t come back to you for 3 weeks... she knew it was bothering me and was spoiling part of my life... she phoned up the place direct, got the results off the phone.. and phoned me direct via my mobile tonight out of office hours to let me know it’s all clear and to enjoy Christmas. Even though i won’t get my letter with the results for another 3 weeks. So fair play to the NHS... well to her. anyway... There are some decent people in the NHS.

You're right honey, there are some good ones in the NHS, you sound like you have one of the good ones babe. I haven't found any of them as they've been effing me round since Lennon's birth 2 years ago

I hope everything is well with you, huge hugs xxxx

I didn't know about this but it's great to hear that everything is ok, it would have been horrible not knowing the results over Christmas.

I agree on the basis that UK residents really don't realize how lucky they are to have the NHS. My mum had cancer about 15 years ago, she went through endless private hospitals and racked up a bill of thousands of pounds through desperation, her life being on the line and all. Only was it an NHS consultant who was able to correctly diagnose and treat her despite being seen my countless private consultants.

So pleased for you mate! The NHS are seriously underrated in some cases. People complain and complain with spectatular stories in mags and tabloid papers like - I LOST MY FOOT THROUGH NURSES GIVING ME HEAD! No other country has an institution like the NHS in the world. Yes, there are some cases where procedures can go wrong and negligence can overcome care but other than that, the NHS is still one of the best things this country will ever have.

Hope you have a great christmas Stu, as well as everybody else! xx

Ahh Congrats Stu, it;s good to hear you're gonna be fine. I must admit that my experiences with the NHs haven't been brilliant lately, but they do do a good job, and Are one of the best services in the world.

To be fair it dragged me down a bit, and made me very snappy and down to be fair, changed my personality and think i upset a few people coz it just made me more stressed and meh but they didn't know what was going on i suppose...

But yeah its gone done dusted, till next time... but yeah life goes on. My dad's best mate who is like a 2nd dad to me has got lung cancer and has started keiemo treatment but it's not looking like he'll make Christmas they say... so god knows how him and his family are coping, i don't thnik i could if i was him.. there are some real strong people out there.

Thanks again, at least i can try and enjoy Christmas - and bring on New Year!
Thanks again for your supportive comments, god bless you.

2009 - YEAAAHHHH!!!!!

She sounds like a right legend! Good to know that there are still people in the NHS who can care, and that you're OK. :D
