Following the report on the NHS having fallen apart for some people
I was asked to bring you better news. No need to go into detail but a case of
unexpected bleeding resulted in a face-to-face appointment with a doctor
within two hours. Darenth Valley a couple of days later for tests and an appointment
for a computerised tomography (CT) scan at Queen Mary’s Sidcup shortly afterwards.
So it would seem that with the right doctor and with the ‘wrong’ symptoms the NHS may still be working. I hope my new correspondent is given the CT results without having to wait months as has been reported by some - and me - and that they are better than expected.
