Bonce...Hello, I'd like to make an appointment to see the doctor.

Receptionist.....OK, what's it about?

Bonce.....Mind your own business you nosey cow.

I end up putting the phone down. I'll discuss my problem with the doctor, not the old trout on the desk.

You should tell them something bizarre that would make them blush.

They wouldn't dare ask again I'm sure. Very Happy

Not me. I'm not having them say 'here's that bloke with the bent nob' as I walk through the door.

Like they normally do.

Just tell them that your dick is too big and you'd like to discuss a reduction as you're having difficulty walking.


NB: That's "walking" with an "L"

When I book an appointment over the internet, (usually for 3 weeks later), we are asked the reason why. I usually put something down as it would take the GP ages to go through my record looking for associated issues  Very Happy

The one thing that really was of use was the Lever Chambers walk in centre near the octagon theatre that was closed down. 

If you needed to see someone but wasn’t serious enough to go to A&E and couldn’t get a doctors appointment then you would go there and someone would see you. 

These should be brought back all over IMO.

One thing that will make A&E waiting times and GP lists even longer is the number of elderly ex-pats returning to the UK when they find they can no longer get free medical treatment in the EU. Plus all the EU nationals who work or worked in the NHS leaving the UK.

Brexit the gift that keeps on giving. Rolling Eyes

I am. Since Christmas, my brilliant Polish dentist has decided to go back and close the business (and the only other one in town is full and not registering new patients) there's a two month wait for a plasterer (I've asked 5) to make good the damp proofing I'm having done on the house I'm trying to sell, the £6 hand car wash has gone and my gym membership has gone up by an outrageous 17%.

How is the Tory government doing?

Obviously countless disparagement could be written. The main one this week, from experience, is the constant running down of the NHS. They are trying to make the NHS look unfit for purpose. I can only state this and not go into lengthy detail of it all, but you all know. Also the stealth privatisation of it. They are, and have been for many years, cherrypicking all the profitable sections of it, and selling them off into the private sector, stealthily, and leaving the non-profitable parts of it in the hands of the tax payer.

Making the NHS available for sale to private American health companies is a cornerstone of Borat's proposed post-Brexit trade deal with the US to offset the lost EU trade deals and Trump made it crystal clear that in any deal with the US the NHS would be on the table

Just as worrying is the potential hike in the cost of medicines  which we currently get at just about affordable prices under existing arrangements. Estimates of the additional cost to the NHS vary between £18 and £45 BILLION per annum.

As discussed at length previously, Borat is going to have to accept whatever the US and other countries stick us with now that we are leaving the protection of the EU's buying power.

Still it's what we (or rather 37% of the electorate Smile) voted for so I'm assuming nobody's bothered.

Fucking hell.

Still peddling the myth that the NHS is for sale.

It worked so well for jezza in the election didn't it.

Can’t trust a word that comes out of Boris’s mouth so need to wait until the negotiations are done to know whether or not the NHS is going to be involved.

Reality check: it's not me who is saying it.

Better than peddling the myth that we'll be better off out of the EU on the basis that the professionals in just about every field no nothing compared to the average bloke on the street.

Fake news.
This handy Brexit cost calculator only makes it half of that £150 billion so far, although it doesn't take into account some of the lost revenue costs. Roughly it's costing £727 per second aka £439 million a week.

Although I like the graphics which say that with the money we've wasted on Brexit so far...
* We could have employed 3,566,561 extra nurses, or...
* We could have built 45 new hospitals, or...
* We could have recruited 4,232,105 new police officers, or...
* We could have bought 5,468 new trains, or...
* Repaired 911,454,514 potholes, or....
* We could have secured 3,516,112 new border officers.

(all at time of writing)

We "could have" but the Tories wouldn't have spent the UK's £850 billion annual budget on those things anyway so it's a moot point.
However that £439 million a week loss sure puts the cost figures bandies about by the leave campaign into perspective. And that's without the other trading costs that Business Insider took into consideration.

Trouble ahead I'm telling you.

There will be trouble ahead, not just because of the changes coming, but you lot are actually willing the country to fail. Pathetic.
