We will take care of you but not your records!

How dare they fill a corridor with all those documents, don't they know that that space could have been used by some patient on a trolley.

I believe they only discovered the records when they lifted the patient off the boxes ;o)

"We will take care of you ...."

That, in itself, is a breakthrough.

My other half has had a series of serious illnesses for the past 16 years.

The continuous care and attention she has received from the NHS over that period, whether in Scotland or Merseyside, has been absolutely top notch and continues to be so.

I'm sure it has, like the treatment given to tens of millions of other people, including my own wife who has an appointment this very day for ongoing treatment to a ten year condition.

However, Southern General, and the area NHS trust, do not have the best of reputations in this regard, and fairly regularly feature in the local news.

Actually the first hospital my wife had treatment in 1993 (after a 200 mile plus dash by ambulance from the end of Loch Fyne) was Southern General.

The hospital, in fact, had a proud reputation for its work and we were pleased to discover that the particular department she was in enjoyed close links with Walton Hospital, in Liverpool, to where she was transferred after three weeks (much closer to home as well).
