Jobsworths make a crisis at hospital
I WAS sorry to read about Mr Fisher’s illness (Gazette letters, April 15).
Do you ever feel the ‘lunatics are in charge’ of some of the services, or are hamstrung by jobsworths without an ounce of sense between them.
They make a crisis and do little or nothing to dispel anxiety.
It is worrying and frustrating what you have to endure to get the life-saving treatment needed.
Now thank God he is in good hands and on the mend.
As regards hospitals, I was at Hillingdon (cardiology) today and Harefield two weeks ago and they are excellent in their standards of care, kindness and being supportive but you could say I am biased.
I used to work at Hillingdon, care of the elderly being my speciality.
I retired in October 2013 because of a heart condition.
I was then working for Crossroads and, mad as it may seem, I loved my work and felt what I did improved the quality of care for those I visited. April 15) but glad to hear of the good work being done at Hillingdon Hospital.
I hope Mr Fisher makes good progress.
I have reason to be grateful to them, too.
Our daughter, a doctor, says we are very lucky to have Hillingdon, Mount Vernon and Harefield all within easy reach.
