I have had to use the services of the NHS quite a lot in my lifetime and I have always received great help from them whether in a hospital or in the community. I would say that I have been lucky to have met some great people and I hope that is the same for everyone else. The thing is you don’t realise how great they are until you need them. Unfortunately, or fortunately I can’t remember the care that was given to me during the worst month of my life. Sitting at home though when I watch the TV I can imagine how hard it must be for the staff that work in the hospitals. You don’t really realise that day to day they are encountered with life and death. I have been told that when I was in the critical care unit my parents had to watch when the medics fought to say someones life, unfortunately he did not survive. Imagine experiencing that every day. They much have such resilience, I couldn’t do it. From the paramedics that saved my life, the doctors and nurses that looked after me in the hospital down to my own GP – you are amazing. Every Thursday night at the moment we stand on our doorsteps and clap the NHS. This is a great way that we can thank them for the care they give. Doing this every week has made me think about all the help I have gotten from different areas of the NHS. I would like to thank them all. Some people are able to talk to a larger social media community. I know I only have a handful of people who read my blog but if they can pass on the message that the NHS are amazing that would be great. The NHS saved my life – I love the NHS.
