Yesterday I saved the health service a fair amount of money. An elderly villager called me over to have a look at her husband, who was feeling unwell after a fall. The " out of hours" care is complicated for some elderly to utilise easily , so I never mind such requests, and as it turned out It was fortunate that I did go round as the husband needed immediate hospital care, care that might have been too late if he had waited for the GP surgery to open 24 hours later.
I was more than happy to be able to help....I'm not rehashing the story to obtain a list of " what a lovely person I am" kind of comments...that's what neighbours do for each other.....they help each other....
I am just slightly hacked off that I do a job which is generally seen as being a positive to a society
And I have to pay a soddin £ 100 quid a year to do so.
