    Hospitals and the NHS. What the fuck is going on. Today I took the wife to Stepping Hill hospital In Stockport. She fell over at weekend and broke two vertebrae's in her spine.
    Pics to prove. Photo0002.jpg

    Arrived at the hospital at 9.00am for her appointment to see the doc. 2 fucking hours sat in a waiting room (well past her appointment time) to see a fucking doctor for 5 mins.
    Then they send her for another X ray. Another 2 fucking hours sat in a waiting room stinking of piss for a 2 minute X ray.
    When she finally had her X ray done, they sent her to have her body brace fitted. We got to the place where she had to have her body brace fitted and this stroppy fucking nurse said. "your appointment to have your brace fitted was at 12, so you have missed it. At this point, the wife started crying, and I lost it. "we have been waiting for the X ray for ages and it is not our fault, sort your useless system out" The idiot nurse then sees sense and said "ok, the guy that fits the braces has gone for his lunch and wont be back for an hour, come back in an hour" I was having a fucking mental breakdown at this point, and I was trying to stop the wife from crying. She had not had any pain killers for hours, due to her leaving them at home thinking we wouldn't be ages at the hospital.
    Anyway. My rant is. It must have taken all of 30 mins sorting her out with stuff, but it took six fucking hours.
    And when it was finally all over we walked back to the car to find some cunt trying to slap a ticket on the car cos the parking ticket had ran out. I said to him (I was fuckin ripping at this point) "give us a break mate, we have been stuck in the hospital, hence the ticket running out" He said "I'm only doing my job mate" I said "either rip up the ticket, or spend the night in A&E" he saw sense and declined.
    All in all, a mad day.
    NHS rant over for now.

    yeah, not the quickest, my mum spent 6 hours "waiting for her appointment" on Tuesday, for all of about 10mins with a Dr, thankfully wasn't as serious as first thought

    Hope the Mrs gets on the mend quickly.

    I don't do well either with the waiting and excuses, especially when you have an appointment, the temper has a tendency to fray

    It's fucking rubbish mate. I do appreciate what nurses and doctors have to put up with, and the hours they have to work. But I pay my taxes for a better service, and it is not the doctors and nurses fault. It is the fucking idiots that run this so called country that I blame. Ok. I had a rant. And I think I was Justified in said rant.
    Ironically. My wife works for a company that supplies computer software to hospitals to improve their systems. I think see fuck up somewhere. :D
