New Zealand: Our Hospitals are about to Fail

New Zealand: Our Hospitals are about to Fail

Last week I went to my medical centre for the first time in just under 3 years because I have been suffering constant chest pains and suspected angina. I am used, from my experience over the last 10 years to be gaslighted and ‘insinuated’ by condoscending doctors that there is nothing wrong with me and it’s in my mind.

You can read my biography which sets out this whole saga HERE.

I was fully expecting that I would have the same treatment, albeit from a new face. But I was surprised. Not only did he do the honour of actually listening to me but he strongly suggested that I go to the Emergency Department at the hospital ‘as a matter of urgency’

Could it have anything to do with this?

This was a fairly-insistent letter from a man’s medical centre. In addition I have seen advertisements from Health New Zealand telling people suffering from chest pain, “do not take a shower but ring 111” (emergency).

My way was eased by the doctor ringing the hospital and sending me along with a referral. However, I was surprised to find the waiting room at the hospital only half-full and the Emergency Department mid-morning did not seem over-busy.

I was rather surprised by that especially after all the anecdotes we have been hearing in recent months.

On that very morning a friend of ours wth Parkinson’s had to be sent to hospital but had a 12-HOUR WAIT for the ambulance.

Yesterday I found the following video which pointed out in no uncertain terms how serious the situation is.

The man in the video referenced the last government of Jacinda Adern which was voted out of the government so it must be some months old.

However, I cannot imagine much has changed in the week since the new government was sworn in.

By the way, Radio Check Radio interviewed the whistleblower, Garry Young this morning.

It should be up on the site in the next day or so.
