Re: health care

Hi Peter and Sarahj,
I am so sorry for your Dad Sarahj - this has also been my experience over the last few months with the NHS - my husband has been waiting since September 2013 to see a consultant neuro-surgeon and in spite of a complaint and help from my MP we are still waiting - our lives are on hold.  Peter is correct as I so often find. We all have to write to our MPs and complain and harrass them, that is what they are paid for! The problems that you and I have experienced are as a direct result of that incompetent fool Andrew Lansley and his unworkable masterplan.  He has destroyed the NHS and his successor, Jeremy Hunt is still continuing what was always the Tory policy of privatisation of the NHS. I have written to Hunt with a copy to Cameron who replied immediately without a satisfactory response and Hunt didn't have the courtesy to respond until I reminded him of my letter - all I received was a placatory, pathetic and patronising response. I don't feel that either Lansley or Hunt are in any way qualified to run the NHS and are not fit to run anything - they are both totally incompetent! I just live in hope that they all get booted out next year and we get a government that supports our much needed NHS and social care. This bunch of buffoons are truly the worst and  most useless bunch  of politicians under whom I have ever had the misfortune to be governed. I loathed Thatcher and her minions, came to dislike and distrust Blair and co, he is a war criminal and certainly did not live up to my hopes and expectations but this lot are unbelievably stupid, blundering around destroying our much loved and essential institutions. Previous colourless Tories like Antony Eden, MacMillan, Alec Douglas Hume never seemed to be so awful, greedy uncaring and self-interested but maybe my memory is poor!
Peter. C Peter. C

Re: health care

Many thanks Peter. It was ever thus, politicians in league with big business - all with snouts in the trough! No doubt once politics is  no longer a viable proposition there will always be a job on the board of these private health care companies. What infuriates me even more is when a patient is so ill and the private hospital doesn't have the equipment or resources they have to revert to the NHS!
This bunch don't even try to hide it - totally immoral, all of them.  I am disgusted and angry!

Re: health care

I wonder if any one else watched an item on the ITV news last week, it referred to a pending NHS policy that would allow the NHS to discriminate between patients as to who will get certain drugs and those who will not, on the basis of age and whether or not the potential recipient is working and contributing to the NI pot.

In principle then anyone aged from 0- 18 or from 65+ has not yet become, or has finished being a productive self funding candidate for expensive life saving drug treatments, there is obviously another sector of the population that would fall foul of this policy that is the unemployed, the socially inactive, the disabled and the low paid employed all of whom are to differing degrees dependent on state benefits all of whom are considered by this policy as non or low funding and therefore medically expendable.

Jeremy Hunt
24 Hours To Save Stafford Hospital Dear Mr Hunt In the next few days a decision will be made on proposals to transfer vital maternity and paediatric services from Stafford to Stoke, along with the continued night time closure of A and E. The people of Stafford and surrounds appeal to you not to pursue this patently irresponsible course of action. We are not luddites, neither are we just lazy folk who don’t want the inconvenience of having to travel for our emergency healthcare. The idea of specialist, regional centres of excellence, with the best doctors, surgeons and consultants all clustered in one place has many merits, but there are also many glaringly obvious pitfalls, especially in Stafford’s instance. Chief amongst these is the issue of whether or not an ambulance can transport a critically ill person the twenty miles from Stafford to Stoke in time to avoid loss of life. This question has been asked many times by the people of Stafford, both of the Trust Special Administrators and the local Clinical Commissioning Group. However, neither has been courageous enough to give us an answer. Furthermore, with Stafford’s ambulances having to make longer journey’s to either UHNS in Stoke or New Cross in Wolverhampton, there is a very real possibility that there will be points when there are no vehicles available to attend emergencies in the town. Indeed, only two weeks ago, a Stafford man suffered a heart attack and it took twenty-one minutes for an ambulance to attend. Another query that has been raised time and again by the good people of Stafford and surrounds is whether or not there is enough capacity at UHNS to accommodate them. Again, nobody, either from the TSA or the CCG has been able to guarantee that there will be. On October 31st 2012, Stafford resident Helen Alsopp suffered a cardiac arrest. She was ten minutes too late to be admitted at Stafford A and E and so had to travel to UHNS in Stoke. But UHNS couldn’t find her a bed. Eleven other hospitals were unable to find Mrs Alsopp a bed until she was eventually admitted to a hospital in Hereford. As if these issues are not enough, we must then consider the impact on the more disadvantaged amongst the Stafford and surrounds population. These people will not be able to afford the transport costs, either to attend UHNS as a patient or to visit loved ones. What is most shocking is that the TSA have failed to demonstrate that the population of Stafford will be transferring to a service either equal to or better than the one they currently enjoy. As such, I put it to you that they have failed one of four key tests that must be passed before any changes can be made to local health services? Another test that has not been passed is in relation to GP support for these changes. In a recent ballot of local GPs only nineteen percent took the opportunity to support the TSA proposals, despite the CCG claiming to have achieved a consensus amongst its members. Seventy –five percent of local GPs abstained, meaning that the final result was a resounding show of no confidence in the TSA’s proposals. How can we be anything other than frightened by these proposals when our GPs, the people we put so much trust in, are too frightened to commit one way or another? As the people charged with the task of commissioning our health services, isn’t it incumbent upon GPs to take responsibility for those commissioning decisions? In this case they seem to have abdicated that responsibility, bringing the health and social Care act of 2012 in to disrepute. Indeed, the result of the Stafford GP ballot seems to indicate that the Care Act may have placed extra responsibilities upon people who never wanted them in the first place. As we enter the eleventh hour, may I appeal to your humanity and request that you read some of the comments left on this petition. Again and again people have cited stories of how tragedies would have occurred had a fully functioning Stafford hospital, complete with all its acute services, not been available. Should one of the tragedies predicted here occur because of the removal of our acute services, then neither you or Stafford and Surrounds CCG board of governors can ever claim that they were not warned beforehand. Before you make your final decision on Stafford hospital, I urge you to ask yourself these questions: Can I guarantee that critically ill patients will survive a twenty mile ambulance journey, the duration of which is indeterminable and subject to the vagaries of busy traffic? If these patients do die or suffer adverse effects, could this have been avoided had they been transported to a fully functioning Stafford hospital instead, just a couple of miles and a couple of minutes down the road? Can I guarantee that there is enough capacity at UHNS to accommodate patients from Stafford? Will poorer stakeholders have less equal access to health services because of the cost of travel to and from Stoke or Wolverhampton? Will I be sending Stafford patients to equal or better services on all counts – A and E, paediatrics, maternity – than the one they currently enjoy? If you cannot answer these questions – particularly the one about getting critically ill people to a hospital in time – but still push ahead with the downgrading of Stafford hospital’s acute services, then it could be interpreted as an act of gross negligence. In the event that any of us suffer bereavement or unnecessary suffering as a direct consequence of these changes, then we will be looking to make the decision makers accountable. Yours sincerely Geoff Small.

My dad had a similar problem and somebody told me about a private health company that helped me in finding good physicians online and they even provided a lot of information about his problem and it helped us in making good decisions after that. In my opinion, you must also take an advice and then move further with the treatments.
