What I hate is the courtesy title Dr.

Folk usually ask what sort of doctor I was.

Mind you, they asked that when I was working. :roll:

You are a more useful Dr. in a medical emergency than the other kind!

The title of Captain has always been a problem for me with someone who retired from the army years ago, although sensibly it is now falling out of use.

Did 4 years apprenticeship to end up a general .

General Dogs Body

Not as bad as the electrician who had to rod the drains was I glad to get out of factory.

Could have been worse Sharon you could have done 10 hour course and become a Nun then I would have been in trouble :lol:

Well a nun going off the rails has stopped the conversation on the NHS in it's tracks.

:lol: :lol: we'll have nun of that!

Back on track: we now have the model for the new Integrated Urgent Care Centre in this area. Yes that's what they've called it!

It will be next door to A&E and will take most appointments via 111 although patients can walk in. There will be a GP on site at all times and nurses to do initial triage and subsequent treatment.

Then a Navigation worker to direct patient to appropriate NHS services for follow up.

Any patients turning up at A&E inappropriately will be sent straight into Urgent Care centre.

Who knows if it will work, but with experience probably not.

This is on top of 7 day access to GPs. No wonder the patients don't know what to do, it's so bloody complicated. To be honest I wouldn't know where to go if I needed treatment out of hours :lol: .

It's probably easier to phone the undertaker just in case and stay at home and see what happens.

Hugs

Jane xx
