No trouble with bullying receptionists at our Practice, or the previous one. Bullying receptionists might seem to be a thing of the past. The trouble is that people could phone the GP for an appointment and as a matter of course, say that it's urgent. If receptionists aren't given some idea of a patients condition, how can they assess if it might be or not? They are all an integral part of the service.

Just would make it clear that our being sent to the the hospital was not as an A&E patient but in any event, GPs probably don't do that lightly. Even if the GP does get it wrong and the referral is subsequently frowned on by the hospital, what about a case where they are right and the referral saves a life? It might then be said how the GP's action was the right thing to do. They would surely come under great and newsworthy criticism had the patient not been sent straight to a hospital.

Mart is all political. Unfortunately you are dealing with people's lives not cattle.

It is achievable look at Spain.  

GPS do push people towards admission but it's not fair on the service on the whole. There are protocols they should follow. People with colds simply should not be in A& E. The government  want them to pull their finger out.

Needs complete revamping  in my view. batman

Our hospital has a department called 'M.A.U.' which stands for 'Medical Assessment Unit'. There might be the same department in other hospitals? That's just what was done in our case. Sent to a place where conditions could be quickly assessed in case more immediate treatment was needed.

Treated individually and well I'd say but perhaps cases vary.

my friendly doc is Dr Vin as we call him [no not asian - short for vincent] he is 70 we spend 30 mins talkin about politics, the worlds ills etc etc and then 30 mins about me - I didn't like it much today when he stuck his finger up me bum but he was very professional about it and had a glove and lubricant!

he draws nice pics for me to show me what is wrong with me and gives me anything I ask for apart from cannabis which he is not allowed to yet!

to save him time I see a nice clinic nurse who takes me BP; temp; weight and any blood and urine if required - I asked her this morning 'are you taking the piss'?

DRE digital rectal examination. Prostate problems. There are specialist nurses now who run clinics to save the Consultant for the more serious side of things...in the UK

A friend of mine was one and depending if the patient was pleasant then she was very gentle . On the odd occasion she used too pop on her gloves slowly and say, are you feeling lucky liked Clint Eastwood films.  thumb
