Unless i cant patch my self up or i am unconsiouse i would not into an NHS HOSPITAL , iv been there and died 3 times
and made it back ,one instance was i was given the wrong drugs and was halucinating for 3 days and had no food before an agency sister found out what wrong she changed the drugs and i came out of it , the following day i was put into an ambulance and sent home where i remained on the floor until i could reach the phone and call the doctor, who sedated me and got me into bed , if you live in Dorchester dont go into that hospital !

Stay out of the NHS so called hospitals unless you have no choice at all .

Dont have the governments free injections ,you will live longer !

If your over 60 your doctor will be young very young because they are playing doctor and need someone to practice on !

DNR was they wrote on your medical sheet ,then they got found out and entered it as a code .
The government said go out and get fit there were grants for the governments keep fit and diet well programs ,and there was money to be made .
Now we have OH people are living to long and draining our money banks , they are living to long ,so they did away with disinfectant in hospitals and employed doctors and staff that could not even speak the language
then we had the MRSA , winter vomiting bugs , and now we have neglect ,
it makes you wonder what kind of country we are living in .
Whats next open day on the over 60s ?

To my fellow Americans on this article, what are you talking about? Only the super rich get looked at? What!? Me and my family are by no means rich and my mother especially has been in and out of hospitals her whole life and we've had no issues. We've run across a stupid doctor or two, but that's it. And then we just never go back to that doctor again.
