    I've always had home visits for my parents since moving up here. Dad was 97 when he died and had walking problems, Mum's problems (she's now coming up for 93) altho' 13 years younger than Dad are much worse. Not not had a home visit to date but it's getting harder - possibly because the husband and wife team who took over the practice - knowing that they needed to give out of hours and on rota hospital cover - have decided to withdraw. This leaves a population of over 3,000 people without adequate A&E cover on island and over 1,000 relying on locums at vast cost to the NHS indefinitely.

    Quote......."And my partner has been waiting for more than a year now for an operation. Excuse me if my views on the NHS are less than complimentary."A bloke in our village who wet to the local A&E department with chest pains, after waiting for 3 hours, he eventually saw a doctor.The doctor had a quick look at him, listened to his chest, told him to go home and take an Asprin?The bloke did that, then died of a heart attack the following morning?

    I think doctors surgeries are a lot like garages. There are good ones and there are bad ones. Some know what they are doing and some don't. Its a bit of a lottery really.

    Sometimes another medical professional will request the immediate attendance and assistance from the GP. such as a midwife.
