When will GPs, dentists, Councils get back to normal?

You canít get to see our GP for weeks, itís all phone consultations. The dentist might as well close for good as nobody can get an appointment. Our local council .... theyíre all working from home. WHY? My neighbour works for the council as an advisor on trees and he is working from home! 😂😂

Shop workers, all the tradesmen, hairdressers, etc are all working so why are they any different?

My acupuncurist is working and she takes strict precautions and requires patients to do the same and she canít understand why GPs arenít seeing people.

I donít believe that any dentist or doctor would not get their washing machine or cooker fixed by a tradesman coming to their house and they wouldnít refuse to get their hair cut.

Itís madness to me.

Yep, unless you go private.

If you ring doctors surgery and get recorded message informing you are number something in queue and to hang on be prepared to be cut off when you think you might be through with another recorded message, ' sorry there are no operators available to take your call'. No good for blood pressure.

Best to hang up if phone not answered, was number 4 waited 10 minutes and was really p****d off.

Making a small fortune out of this no doubt.

And the problem with that is?

We've subscribed to private health care for just under 55 years. It's really affordable for most people and do VERY much better than the NHS.

A great many folk buy a minimum coverage package and either back it up with the NHS or save a few quid a month in bonds to fund major work.

Criticise us as you want but we are actually taking a bit of load off the NHS for which we should be getting a tax rebate.

The NHS has serious hygiene issues and is overwhelmed at 40%. We really need to sort it out

Hardly surprising with all the foreigners employed. Especially those who refuse to use alcohol hand gel.

In answer to the question...no, I don't think the regular services will ever be resumed. Its all very well going private for healthcare, but how to do that with council services?

Re: When will GPs, dentists, Councils get back to normal?

My neighbour told me this afternoon that her friend didn't feel well recently. The GP wouldn't see her, and next day her family found her laying on the ground in her garden! She'd had a stroke!

I haven't the words to tell you how shameful and dangerous all this telephone consult rubbish is.
I can't see why it is still so necessary if both parties have had both jabs and both wear masks.

Says a lot for their faith in the vaccine don't it.

Exactly! I was at the chemist yesterday to collect medication. 14 people were before me and they were only letting in one at a time! All staff had apparently been vaccinated
