The NHS at work...

In mid-August I visited Edinburgh, where I stepped off a kerb and knackered my knee. Since then, the NHS timetable has been as follows:

August 18th -- saw my doctor. Discussed knee. Sent for X-ray. X-ray taken.

August 26th -- saw my doctor. Discussed X-ray. Put on monster NSAIDs.

September 22nd -- saw my doctor. Taken off monster NSAIDS before they destroy my liver. Discussed knee. Sent for blood tests.

September 24th -- blood test taken. Await results.

October 8th -- saw my doctor. Discussed blood test results. Blood tests normal. Am told blood tests were nothing to do with knee trouble. Discussed knee more forcefully. Demanded referral.

November 5th -- saw a specialist. Discussed knee. Knee was actually examined. Discussed physiotherapy.

November 30th -- I am to see a physiotherapist.

More news later.
