    im gonna b workin 4 the health service in 3 yrs(hopefully). i think its crap basically, but i love the career im following so i will have 2 put up with it. mayb when im a high and might paramedic i will make a few changes! ie, speed up time of ambulance arrivals!
    one thing that realy gets me is people who die when they r on huge waiting lists, and just dont get the chance to live on.
    oh, i also think nurses should b paid more!!

    Probably going to be slagged for this. Its a bit of a myth now about poorly paid nurses. My best mate is doing the job I did before my back forced me to retire. He is earning £42k and a company BMW. I know he isn't typical, but the money is around.

    ok, mayb the moneys a bit better, but i still think we deserve more as we r saving peoples lives and lookin after them!

    I think the NHS is shit.... it's like officially the 3rd worst health service in Europe...
    Last two times I been to a casulaty I went in there sat for 3 hours waiting.. got seen by a doctor who couldn't speak n e English, at least not understandable... the first time he discharged me... pain in wrist kept hurting went to GP... he reffered me to casualty.... saw an English doctor this time sent me straight to X-Ray n I had a fractured wrist... the doctor said it was obviously fractured looking at it as well...

    Next time again 3 hour wait foreign doctor.. had an x-ray nothing wrong... just opver a week l8r phone call from the hospital telling me I had broken my hand, had to have months of physio on it and i still cant move one of my fingers proper.

    Another time had a eye problem went to the doctors he said summing was wrong reffered me to eye casualty, another foreign dr checked my eye... nothing wrong.. went to the doctors 2 day l8r cos I was in t6oomuch pain... couldn't sleep... he put me straight through to an eye specialist, told her the problem... she said straight away u got an inlamed optical nerve, checked it over n gave me some medicine for it... If I had believed the first person I could have lost sight in my eye...

    I wanna know where some Doctors get there qualifications from... how can they be allowed to practise medicine in this country when they cant speak English and cant diagnose obvious problems
