"Ok for NHS not so for private patients."
Posted by Sore throat
Springfield used to be the best place for self-funded patients or for those with private healthcare. Not so much now. The hospital caters for an ever increasing volume of NHS patients so it's become very busy, lots of waiting around, queues, limited appointments and so on.
Makes me wonder why I bothered to spend a fortune on health insurance when almost everyone else was getting same service for free. My appointment with the consultant felt rushed and there was little opportunity for discussion. A diagnosis of my condition was given without any detailed explanation.
Needless to say I'm going elsewhere for a second opinion, hopefully more patient-focused.
How bizarre that same-sex accommodation is deemed so important in healthcare!
