There are good and bad things about this job at this time of the year.
Good: Two four day weeks – thanks to Easter Bank Holidays. I’ve been working in Primary care for nearly 2 years and the novelty of bank holidays has not yet worn off.
Bad: I work in a area of tourism, and Easter tends to indicate the beginning of tourism. So I have been expecting the worst. Usually a minibus of pensioners who have all forgotten to bring their tablets.
“It’s the little white ones I need dear”, a universally recognised problem!
But essentially I’ve had a relatively benign week thus far, someone else presented with body shop syndrome, but also reported a little jaundice – not quite to the standard demonstrated by young Bart.
……so I gave them a blood test form.
In the News today, It appears that the price of using a bedside phone in an NHS hospital has increased dramatically.
We hear that: “Calls to patients from outside the hospital cost 39p per minute off-peak and 49p a minute at peak times”.
Well that gets me thinking, IT’S A BARGAIN. If you wanted to speak to someone on the phone who is not wearing much, in the past you always had to get the telephone number from a magazines on the top shelf – and (I am advised) they cost £1 a minute!
solve this problem. I’m sure that when you ring these adult lines, it’s only some old granny with a rude imagination anyway, at least “” is stopping the old lady with the severe incontinence from getting bored while the Doctors are doing their grand rounds.
“Ohhhh, yes love, I’m wet alright!!” – Sorry.
