Hospitals can be dangerous places.

I have 25 years working in them hence I have a fair amount of first hand experience.

Staff are and always have been very badly treated by successive Governments as have the Trusts by rampant cuts.

All NHS and supply chain Staff do an exceptional job in keeping the system running.

My roles were medical support related and whenever I had new staff start I always advised them at the interview that the first two years would be rough for them, they would be exposed to bacteria and virusís that would affect their health but they would become resistant and more resilient over time.  It is like being a kid again and picking up all the playground illnesses.

Hence the advice not to go to Hospital is a risk assessed response, simply going into hospital places the patient at an even greater risk.

I had Chronic Bronchitis every year as a child, an absolutely exhausting and frightening illness, my Mum refused our family Doctor's advice for me to go into hospital and sat at my bedside until I fell asleep each night. I've always had Vaporub in the cabinet since.

Our Family Doctor use to come back with a liquid Medicine and that often helped my Bronchitis.

Yes, the NHS and care from Staff is wonderful! Mark

Who was it said:
"There are lies, damned lies, and statistics"
I've heard it attributed to a Dumas (not idea which one) but not at all certain.
But the older and more cynical I get, the more I believe it! Anyone's statistics, on anything.

I was heartened to read today that confirmed hospital cases here in Sussex have fallen for the last three days in a row.  The numbers are coming from the hospitals to local media, so Iím happy that the information is correct.
No figures for care or nursing homes sadly  :(
