She seems to have had an awful lot more to say in the last year than she did when her party was in power. Funny that. :wink:

Well I don't fully understand what they mean by the possible merger and what or how it will affect things :oops:

 

One things for sure Warrington Hospital was very busy today when I went for my appointment... it took me nealy half an hour to finally get a parking space though (I was pre-warned so I went early :wink: ) and ?2.50 for the privilege :evil:

 

I got lost so finished up in all the wrong outpatients departments and everywhere else until I found the right one and the nurses etc were all really busy. I was also amazed by the number of people waiting to have their bloods taken when I went to that bit especially as the nurse said it was a quiet day :shock:

 

I didn't mind the two hour wait though as the consultant I saw was from Liverpool (Walton Centre) and absolutely fantastic and very thorough and best of all I didn't have to drive over to Liverpool as he holds a clinic at Warrington on certain days.

 

No complaints from me :D:D

 

As an after thought... Obs do you think my blood test may prove that I exist :wink::lol:

Why a female thing Peter :?

 

Do you not have to pay to park and then wait Peter.... must be an OAP thing :P

 

Only actually had to wait for 10 mins for my blood test... the two hour wait was cos the patent before me was in with the consultant for 1 1/2 hrs :shock:

 

I got 30 minutes but that was twice the 15 minutes stated allocation time for new patients according to the 'board' :D

 

Keeping up Peter........

 

I'm happy to announce that I am not mad after all :lol::lol:

oooh and there has been a meeting...

 

The British Medical Association has weighed in on the proposed health care reforms:

 

The Allergists have voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists have advised not to make any rash moves.

 

The Gastroenterologists have a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists think the government have a lot of nerve.

 

The Obstetricians feel they are labouring under a misconception, while Ophthalmologists consider the idea short-sighted.

 

Pathologists have come out strongly declaring, 'Over my dead body', while the Paediatricians said 'Oh Grow up'.

 

The Psychiatrists think the whole idea is madness, while the Radiologists can see right through it.

 

Surgeons are fed up with the cuts and have decided to wash their hands of the issue. ENT specialists won't swallow the proposals and just won't hear about it.

 

Pharmacologists think that it is a bitter pill to swallow, whilst Plastic Surgeons have observed, 'that this puts a whole new face on the matter'.

 

The Podiatrists think it is a big step forwards, but the Urologists are pi**ed off with the whole idea, whilst the Anaesthetists think the whole idea is a gas. Meanwhile the Cardiologists don't have the heart to say no.

 

In the end the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision to the a***holes in London.

 

:wink::lol:

the circle will be complete almost.

Did we not have regional health authorities before mad major decided to decentralise? Sold Winwick to pay for the many members of trust boards plenty of money then so lits of nono jobs created.

If centralisation comes just think of how many nobodies will be out of jobs... what will they do? start another circle?

The tops of the new double decker carparks are staff only Peter.. there were a few spaces up there but wheel clamping in 'operation'.

 

Obs... not my own work... my son told it me but as I'd forgotten most of it by the time I'd walked down stairs I then had to google 'sick'opedia :wink:

WELL, it appears that Gordie's (LABOUR) PFI chickens have come home to roost. Seems Whiston and other NHS Hospitals have to pay ?millions per year in mortgage repayments, which are currently underwritten by the tax-payer via the PCTs. The Tories are to eliminate the PCTs, leaving those NHS Hospitals struggling with the debts, so not in a position to compete with the private sector vultures waiting in the wings for the new Health reforms. Why would any viable Hospital Trust wish to merge with a debt ridden one anyway; and will this financial crisis merely bring on swinging cuts in areas of treatment? SO, far from the MP crowing about the situation, they (LABOUR) have paved the way for Tory privatisation of our NHS - thus proving what a load of tossers ALL the so-called main Parties are. :twisted:
