To see a neuro. My doc thought they had 2 week waiting. I had a long telephone wait to speak to a woman who could barely speak English to tell me actually it will almost be Xmas before a consultation.
i must have paid hundreds of thousands in tax, literally this year already must have funded at least 5k to the nhs, and it’s an 18 week wait. We marvel at our fantastic nhs, but At 33 years old, the first time I’ve needed help and it’s like the Soviet Union - get in the 15 mile queue.
Im im currently considering starting A family…just put all that on hold eh nhs while I wait for you to be bothered to give me a once over. You can talk about funding but having worked with nhs professionals finances in my job for 10 years, I know where a lot of this money is going- holiday homes, early retirements you name it.
over 4 months to even begin any assessment for the lifetime of support I’ve given the service. A complete joke.
what if it’s not ms but a brain tumour or something? So I wait these 4 months and they’ll give me urgent help once I’m falling over in convulsions and too late to do anything.
i uses to believe in nhs but this type of care is utterly pathetic and not deserving of a 1st world country.
perhsps I’ll save them the bother and go private so they can keep my tax in its entirety for their vast salaries and the odd appointment for poor folks. Absolutely fuming, how many people have died or got complications waiting for these appointments?
