Well. Its not my favourite place, but something has to be said for Chelsea and Westminister Hospital.
I spend a lot of time in there, and I think its a real good Hospital.The place gets a lot of flack at the moment, what with that lady getting MMR, and it being in the NHS full stop.

My experience has always been a good one. I tend to see my doc on time all the time (yes, I too was shocked), who happens to be THE doc by the way; this guy is recognized in America and specialises in his feild for the whole country… my hero. The plebomotmy people are quite quick too which is good as they take a hell of a lot of my blood.
Ive always found it easy to call up and appointments are easy to get, Ive had to wait up to 3 months at various other places, here its usually 6 weeks, and funny enough, only a 2 week wait for day surgery.

I went in for a day surgery last week, and for such a terrifying thing, it went well. The theatre geezer told me to think of wallace and grommit (?), it was all done quickly and by 2pm I was allowed to go for cigerettes… by 4pm I was allowed to hobble home with a hole in my side, but hey… I didnt get MMR.

Jokes aside, I think CWH is the easiest hospital experience about.

    Marley, I was talking about the attitude people in general have towards the NHS.
    I doubt very much that lady muck lives in a council estate, living on mearge sickness benefit (hey, have a go at me for that too) and spent much of her early childhood standing outside vairous childrens units protesting against thier closure. However, if you want to call me lady muck…. go ahead.
