"Care in NHS hospitals"

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

I always heard moans and complains in the News and from people about the NHS services. This is the 1st time, I had the 1st hand experience myself going to the hospital. I am a Asian origin man. I was taken ill by the Ambulance , from a near by town from Frimley Park Hospital on Thursday April 20 -2013, about midday. I was in the hospital within minutes. Ambulance staff very friendly, dedicated and very very helpful. I have no other words to describe of their excellence services they provided to me. I was diagnosed a near major Stroke. Right from the emergency to the ward all staff were excellent. Although the staff are pay to do their job, But the love and the affection they provide without any hesitation in the acute time, money can not buy it. I spent few days in more acute ward. All the staff in every need was there on demand all the time. I even cried in joy few times. When I got better then I moved to the less acute ward. I could not find any fault . Wards were clean and whole system was so organized that , every thing running smoothly. It is beyond my comprehension that, when I hear from some politicians, the word privatizations that , why some people are bent to destroy the excel.lent public services. It make me that some one somewhere have some vested interests. I tell you some comments made from three different people about the NHS. (1) from a American , she said although you may pay more tax ,but your NHS system. No question ever asked and you receive best possible treatments. In America she said that, when you taken to the emergency ward, the 1st thing is asked is your private health insurance card, if you fail to provide the card, then there is a very likely hood of one demise in a hospitals corridors . The other comment was almost similar. people are always afraid to loose their job, if one have no job then on health insurance and there are more chances to expire on a foot paths. one from Canada . his statement was that ward are very vague information about patients and you chase things,. I can write lot more stories which we hear all times. I conclude now that. what is the point to have a nation, if nation not healthy. Please do not even joke about privatization.
