I Love the NHS

I have so much to blog about. I ended up in Hospital for five days after a problem with my routine catheter change. I was taken by ambulance last Thursday into A&E  at Margate and transferred to Canterbury later that day.The District Nurse made a 999 call about 11.45 and the Ambulance was here inside three minutes. Unfortunately my problem was so severe Margate were unable to fix me and I was transferred BLUES AND TWO'S to Canterbury where they have a dedicated urology department. So if anyone has missed me that is why I have been absent for a few days. I will add some more in the next few days. I love the NHS it is first class


  1. Glad to see you back posting Don. Sounds like you'e had quite an adventure, one I wish you didn't have to deal with obviously. Good to hear someone singing the praises of the NHS. Have a good one :) Denise xxx

  2. Have to agree. My husband was taken to A&E by ambulance 2 weeks ago & then transferred the following day to a specialist neuro unit in West Sussex. He went by emergency ambulance - blues & twos all the way. Unfortunately, he's still there & we don't know when he'll be home.

    Hospital tests might take a long time, but we're so lucky to have the NHS. When we really need it, it's there for us.

  3. glad you are okay. I have had a couple uro related surgeries, so I know where you are coming from.

  4. Thanks folks. Ilove our health service and think the Men and Women who work there are great. I will post a couple more items related to this topic shortly.

  5. You are missed in our hearts any time you are gone. We may not be aware of what is happening, but really do care about how you are. I'm glad you have an efficient nursing and hospital and ambulance service available when needed! Rest up!
