The National Health Service.

I had a bit of a scare recently. Well, I phoned the doctor's surgery this morning. There were no appointments available but the receptionist said come in after 11 and the doctor will see you. I went and saw the doctor. She gave me a check up, a prescription for some some tablets and a spray thing for under my tongue, arranged a blood test, and sent a letter to the hospital to arrange more tests and a walk on a treadmill. At 4-30 today I was given an ECG. Things were normal. I was very relieved to hear that. All this within a few hours. The NHS is always being bad mouthed by some people but I think it is bloody amazing. Just what happened today has made me feel a whole lot better and less worried. The doctors and nurses do a great job. This is a wonderful country. We are very lucky.
