A massive thank you from me and the silent majority for all you do. ! !

Having spent another morning at the wonderful Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital and been treated with courteous respect, as well as promptly and efficiently I felt I had to voice an opinion and hope it filters through.

You're all Angels, thanks again, sincerely !

They took us in a room, gave us a cup of tea, and as soon as we got it, they hushed us along because the real family had come.

That's the NHS for you.

Asked us no questions just came straight out with it.

Thanks OP!
I will try not to loose all your personal details in the post ;)

Nice post,Tony:)

I fully support the NHS and all it stands for.Yes,sometimes they do get it wrong and mistakes happen,but it is run by human beings,who at times are fallible.

If everytime they got it right(rather than wrong) was reported in the Daily Mail,there would be no room for any other news,and the paper wouldn't fit through the letterbox!

Such dedication especially on a fri and sat when they have to put up with so much more!!!

Another morning - hope that things are not too serious and well done you for staying cheerful and thinking of others, Tony. The RD&E as you know gets a bit of a slating from time to time down here in the SW, so I'm pleased that you've had a good experience and IMO we do pretty well as far as our medical staff go - a lot of it I think is that they are often long term employees and local as well. Mind you I've met an awful consultant down in Derriford - but that's another story.
NHS - I'm glad we've got it. Love xx

You'd think they would be a bit more careful! My dad had a heart attack just before xmas and some of the staff in the hospital were actually rather unfriendly. I understand though that its a hard job but some of us are really in rather a fragile state after being told bad news.

To those that have had a bad experience of the NHS I'm sorry to hear it , hopefully your bad experience will be balanced by a far better one in the future. And to those that asked thanks, I am fine.

I started the thread because it struck me while I was sitting in the waiting room at the hospital watching everything going on around me just how vast the NHS is and given that just how hard it must be to motivate the staff in the face of the constant criticism they get.

I didn't want the thread to be about me or indeed for it to be a vehicle for negative comments about the NHS and it's staff. (God knows there is enough of that in the gutter press)

Perhaps I was being rather naive.

I honesty don't think that people understand just what they have in the NHS in this country otherwise they would be nothing but grateful for it's existence.
I for one am very grateful for that existence and that's why I wanted to write a big Thank You !

Even if only seen by a few NHS workers then that will achieved something. (Yes I will be sending in a thank you note :) )

Peace and respect all :)

Don't get me wrong, the NHS have always been helpful, bar one or two times. But the majority alwaysn wins.

So nice when someone takes the trouble to say nice things.

I went to customer services in Asda yesterday on my way out, to mention a member of staff who had gone out of her way and was very helpful

It takes a lot of time and effort to complain (which I am very good at), far less effort to praise someone or a service.

Praise to the NHS also goes to all the more invisible hightly skilled staff who might not have contact with patients e.g those that work in the laboratories, secretaries etc.

It is often also the front line staff who can make all the difference to people, e.g receptionists in A/E who constantly deal with those who are distressed, to those in outpatients who can make all the difference. When my Mum was diagnosed with cancer in the clinic, I will always remember the receptionist who could see we were still upset on the way out of the clinic and insited on coming with us and taking us down the back lift to the car park. Mum looked fine, I was all puffy eyed and really appreciated not having to go through the main waiitng room.

I had an operation a few years back, all was OK but I will never forget one porter who was clearly dedicated to his job and every day I saw him go above and beyond to make those going for surgery relax and even laugh.
The nature of NHS work can be very happy (e.g. birth) to tragic situations. Fortunatley most only experience a small part of it.

Jobs a job... if u dont like it dont do it...
Yes I appreciate what the NHS does, and hate people who moan about it, but equally if ur not liking ur job, and that goes for any job... doesn't have to be a doctor or nurse. Change... enjoy life.

I dislocated my shoulder last week snowboarding and the Doctors at Salford Hope were fantastic - they saw me straight away but they were a tad slow at giving me the morphine...which I REALLY needed at the time!

may i say i think there are too many foreign doctors in hospitals in ni

1. a foreign surgeon stiched my knee and made a mess of it (supposidly the top guy as well)
2. a foreign doctor 'forgot' or couldnt be bothered to refer me for physio after i broke my leg
3. a irish doctor put me in a cast when i broke my arm, and when i went back to get light cast, the foreign doctor said it wasnt broke, so bandaged it up, only for me to lose all feeling in my arm cos it wasnt healing right as it really was broke.

And its not only foreign doctors that mess up

1. a irish doctor missed that i had tore the ligaments in both my shoulders, so put one in a sling (hence putting pressure on the other) until i was so sick all i could do was lie there.
2 . for 3 years numerous different doctors missed my knee problem and dismissed it as 'growing pains' so i was left in agony for years.
3. Sent to casualty with a 'broken bone below my elbow' onyl to find out it couldnt be broke as the bone was not even were they said it was.
4. not being able to spot my back is bent in the wrong direction (even after i told her how to find out it was)

So although some are good, im not going to say they all r cos i've only had one good experience with doctors in 21 years. Sorry

I've been temping at the NHS for a while now and it's been an eye opener.
It angers me that nobody there has any respect for the NHS. (OK some do, but most don't)
I've bee working in the finance department and you would be amazed how they spend money.
They get a consultant in to help save money and are paying him £120 an hour!!!
Have seen an invoice from a garage after somebody wanted their windscreen wipers changed on a company car. It was about £20 for the windscreen wipers and almost £100 to fit them.
Recently saw a bill for the repair of a squeeky chair. One circlip @ 35p and the cost of repairing the cair (fitting the circlip) about £115. The chair cost about £20 brand new!!!


I could go on, but it's the weekend and I don't want to be thinking about work!!!

you do realise you shouldn't give out info like that no matter how small, its the confidentiality thing when it relates to finance :whistling:
