Stand­ing up for the NHS

Yorkshire Post - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

From: Sally Black­burn, Har­ro­gate.

ALL the re­port­ing of the NHS is bad – my re­cent ex­pe­ri­ence was ex­cel­lent.

I had a pain in my breast and a rash. Af­ter two weeks I got an ap­point­ment two days later at my prac­tice in Har­ro­gate and the young lady doc­tor ex­am­ined me.

She could not feel any­thing but re­ferred me to the hos­pi­tal and gave me cream for the rash.

I was seen two weeks later by a breast sur­geon, re-ex­am­ined with neg­a­tive find­ings but he ar­ranged a mam­mo­gram which was done and re­ported back to him within an hour.

Neg­a­tive. He re­as­sured me but said to see my GP if it wors­ened. The pain and rash has gone.

How is that for the NHS at its best here in Har­ro­gate?
