Surgical intervention! We have a great NHS….

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:02 pm by aleksan

Burnfield was on full display in Winchester Hospital today while an East European Bear of a Surgeon very painfully reduced a left Inguinal Hernia. There were quite a gang of peeps up for this spectacle, dressed in headscarves and national costumes. Previously the lady GP and the Registrar had failed to put it right – then I was told the Chief was brutal and painful but could do the job. He did and I hollered! His last words to me, after covering my dignity, spoken in a guttural tongue (? Ukrainian) were “See you in Theatre”. I am on the waiting list for a planned op. Three cheers for our brilliant NHS run by skilled and well educated peeps from all over the world! There was one Brit there – a Mr MacDonald….there is no joy without Clan Donald!
