Up to now I’ve made it a rule that I shouldn’t write about anything too personal on this blog. But rules are made to be broken and what I have written here (NHS – a hearing problem) concerns my interaction with the National Health Service so may be of interest to a wider audience.

I have actually been exchanging emails with the Chair of the Patient Participation Group (PPG) with a view to prompting discussion of possible improvements to healthcare here in Wye.

My thoughts were triggered not only by the national debate but also by my role interviewing for a video for Kersh Media about healthcare reforms in Kent.

I think this video is going to be discussed at a session of the PPG so if anyone has any comments, please let me know and I’ll make sure they are relayed to the relevant people.

    It seems that all access to NHS special services have to be via your GP (with all the delay that that entails) Only A&E can be accessed direct, which perhaps accounts for the fact that A&E throughout the country is cripplingly overstretched. It seems that about 80% of all A&E patients are actually not strictly A&E’s but can generally be treated by a GP or the practice nurse, but for each of these, of course, you have to book an appointment & wait till one is available, so A&E is easier.
