I HAVE JUST COME BACK FROM THE HOSPITAL WHERE I ATTEMPTED TO HAVE MY YEARLY BLOOD TEST AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE FACT THAT I AM COMPUTER SHOUTING, I AM EXCEEDINGLY ANGRY.
Luckily I am very healthy and one of the things I don’t have is high blood pressure but modern life is going out of its way to see that I do have it; and breath…………………
Thinking calming thoughts I think I am in a position to continue, now where was I?
Everyone nowadays seems to have to have a yearly check up with the Doctor, although as I have mentioned before in a previous post I would have thought the appointment would be better taken up by someone who is ill, however I digress.
The consultation with the Doctor was done on the telephone due to Coronavirus and when it was finished he requested that I come to the surgery and pick up the form for my blood test at the local hospital which I did the next day.
Once again due to Coronavirus one was not allowed into the surgery and I was given my form at the door by what I assume was a receptionist and following the usual procedure I had nothing to eat or drink 12 hours before the test the next day.
When I arrived at the Hospital I found like the person in front of me who had just been sent by her Doctor that they were no longer doing walk in blood tests whereby you take a ticket and when your number is called in you pop, they take the sample and you bugger off home, simples!
Having gone to the bother of fasting from last night I was BLOODY LIVID AND COULD FEEL MY BLOOD PRESSURE RISING ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS HANDED A PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE DETAILS OF WHERE I COULD BOOK AN APPOINTMENT ON LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At no time did the Doctor or the receptionist mention I had to make an appointment so I assumed they would have some sort of socially distanced queuing system, I would have appreciated being told before and what made matters worse was the nurse informed me the booking system had been in force for a year now and I feel certain that if the Doctor were to check my notes he would see no mention of a psychic ability.
ALL I CAN SAY IS IF THE DOCTOR IS UNABLE TO REMEMBER TO MENTION YOU HAVE TO BOOK AN OPPOINTMENT WHEN HE SENDS YOU FOR A BLOOD TEST HOW CAN I HAVE ANY FAITH IN HIS ABILITY TO REMEMBER TO LOOK AT THEM WHEN THEY COME BACK.
NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY THEY KEEP GOING ON ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH, I HAD THOUGHT IT WAS JUST THE SNOWFLAKES BEING PRECIOUS BUT AT THIS RATE IF LIFE CONTINUES TO BE THIS RIDICULOUS, IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE I TOO AM AS MAD AS A HATTER!!!!!
