Well Done NHS

I have my follow-up hospital appointment; it's tomorrow. This time the letter was sent by first class post and arrived last Thursday so I have had plenty of notice about it, unlike my original appointment that I found out about by chance.

Tomorrow I will be getting the results of the biopsy. The wound has healed up nicely and the soreness on my nose has gone completely. This would suggest that my problems are probably over and that I will be discharged tomorrow.

The important part about all of this is that the original referral by my GP was made on 28th August; that was the Friday before the Bank Holiday weekend. So in a little over four weeks, I have been referred to the hospital, seen the consultant (and it was a proper doctor consultant), had the biopsy, had the suture removed, and will be having the follow-up appointment and getting the biopsy results.

I'm very pleased with the service that I have received from the NHS, and all it has cost me is my bus fares.

Good luck for your appointment tomorrow, hope things are okay and you get the all clear.

Thanks for the comment. I'm trying very hard not to let him get me down, but it's difficult.
