These cruise ships are awesome Should be fine in about 6 months time
My local doctor will see you through a glass screen, and there's mostly e consultations which is where the doctors and surgeons are. One problem is that areas of hospital are designated Covid zones, and with Boris constantly threatening us with a second wave, we can't stand them down either, as we need to respond. It's a real dilemma, everyone's conscious that regular services need to resume, as there are lives at stake there as well, as at normal situations, the NHS is already absolutely swamped!. But everyone's super clear that people need help, and we need to go above and beyond to deliver that help.
Good on you... There is NO regular service around here, specialists won't see anyone face to face and my doctors surgery is still completely closed with e-consultations only.
NHS bod here I can confirm that all surgeries have been working at full capacity, and all consults have been remote where possible and in person when needed. Noones been slacking that I know of, and regular services have been ramping up in hospitals starting 2 months ago. In fact most people that I know of have been working around 1.5x Thier hours, and more in my colleagues cases ( we are salaried in my team, so no additional pay during this time).
Exactly right, ideal time for doctors and specialists to go on holiday as they aren't doing anything else. Everyone is expected to go back to work/school/office while the NHS doctors and specialists who are best equipped to stay safe still wont do their job and don't care serious illnesses are going untreated. I was told my x-ray visit to the Royal Brompton was being conducted over the phone, can't wait to see how they do that one! Maybe they will have me hold my smartphone camera against my chest.
