The British National health has gone down in standards over many years, it started when the Labour party started to cut left, right and centre.
They cut the amount of staff, the amount of wards and also the amount of money going to the hospitals, etc.
In cutting the amount of wards, they had the bright idea of making some wards mixed, which i would find very awkward. The present Government has stopped mixed wards.
Then they brought in over paid managers to take charge of the hospitals, who in turn brought in junior managers, all these people had to be paid out of the hospital budget which meant more cuts. But if a hospital keep getting worse, someone was brought in to turn the hospital around and back on its feet, but the managers keep their jobs.
Waiting times in A & E are sky-high, 7 to 9 hours you have to wait to get seen by a doctor. When you do see one you could wait another 5 to 8 hours before getting a bed if your being admitted to hospital.
A man in Belfast was seen by a doctor and told he would have to lie on a hospital trolley until they could get a bed for him, when the porters turned up some 5 hours later to take him to a ward, the man was dead.
A lady with a broken hip had to wait on a wheel chair for 6 hours in a corridor corner, the staff forgot all about her.
Another old lady needed to use a commode, so the staff took her to a store-room for privacy, her daughter went 45 minutes later to look for her and again the nurses had forgotten about her.
Its well-known, never go to A & E at the weekends, if you do, get someone to bring down tea and sandwiches as you will be there all day.
But the cuts still go on, its endless. There will never be and end to it as long as the people in charge are there. The hospitals need clinical people to be in charge at least they know what they want and need, not some bright spark from and office.
