Re: The state of our hospitals.

OK so the hospital was brilliant care.
Outside not so well.

I changed my dressings yesterday as I was advised to leave them a while before so the steri strips did not get pulled off and on the biggest hole the wound has pulled apart a bit.
So I took a photo before I replaced the dressing.

I just want someone who knows to look at it and tell me if it's going well or if it needs pulling back together to prevent a horrible scar.

Can I find someone to do that can I heck, my doctors where I went for blood this morning send me to the hub in Rawtenstall - they said they do not do that so go to my doctors (currently in the telephone que) and I suspect they are going to tell me to try 111.

All I want is someone to look a a flippin picture and either go "ooooh thats bad" or "mmmm that's OK" and advise if I need to redo the stitches..
What a state our community care is in eh.

Re: The state of our hospitals.

I rang 111, had to go through hoops and whistles and forms and stuff, they arranged for a doctor to call me today.
If I cannot get them to look at a photo and give an opinion then I'll just have to leave it.

I'm not waiting at hospital for this, there is little point.
I'm not booking an appointment in a months time either lol

Re: The state of our hospitals.

OK all sorted now, Doctor called me, little discussion (he was not happy with receptions handling of this), I sent him a picture - he called back later.

I reapplied new steri strips pushing the skin down nicely and redressed it - job done, anxiety relieved.
So it appears not all of care in the community is broken, just the dragons on reception desks
