There are some rather helpful people at this surgery. Ruth was awesome helping with a last minute prescription request and Karen in the computer team solved my online patient access issues quicker than I could say long welsh station names! Kudos. Don’t knock the NHS until to you’ve lived in countries without a free at point of use service. You don’t realise how good it is when used appropriately.

I go to see my nurse and im well happy with my treatment, maybe people are expecting to much Dr's and nurses are human and so are we. are we becoming like the USA where there's blame there's a claim. We need to get a grip.
