If you are fed up with waiting for days if not weeks to see your GP then you are not alone. Are you worried about the almost daily reports in the media about our failing National Health Service, concerned that either you or a family member just won’t be able to access a doctor when you need to?
As the UK population lives longer and more and more pressure is being put on a National Health Service conceived over seventy years ago and desperately trying to adjust to monumental demand. Technology is being put to good use in the fight to update and streamline, to provide services which are fit for purpose, instantaneous and responsive.
The NHS is actively encouraging its patients to switch from attending their GP surgery in person to arranging and collecting prescriptions via an online service. Quicker and slicker, if you buy medicine online, it saves the NHS both time and money and could make your life easier too.
Choosing care home services for a parent or treasured elderly relative is a complex, expensive and onerous commitment. It is one of the most critical decisions you will ever make for a family member and you want to be absolutely certain in your mind that you have opted for the best possible care for your loved one.
