If you're a trans / non-binary person on HRT (DIY or prescription) in the UK & you want your GP to agree to giving you a blood test, try doing the following:

• Email or write a letter to the practice manager at your GP surgery.

• Tell them you're trans / non-binary & ask them to carry out regular hormone level tests.

• Ask them to refer to the senior partner(s) at the surgery & the local ICB if they need.

Another example of the nonsense that is the creeping privatisation of the #NHS

Mrs Mike did an online hearing test a couple of weeks ago - it indicates she may need a proper test.

She contacted the GP (as advised, and how I got my referral).
Surgery says no - book with this company.
Company says no - we don't do NHS #hearing tests.

She's going to try to sort it out when she goes into the surgery next time.

Healthcare in South Bristol is in free fall. The services have fallen apart. Lots of pharmacies have closed so access to medicines can take up to 10 days to get even if you can get a prescription from a GP and seeing one of them takes a Herculean effort and often you can’t get to see one or speak to one. My blood pressure meds ran out last week and I can’t get any. #healthcare #bristol #nhs #gp #pharmacies #thirdworlduk #uk #southbristol

This month's data on #NHS #waiitinglists show they continue to get worse despite the pious words about improvement & investment from #RishiSunak...

Rather than be impressed by his declarations, what #voters who still think the #Tories are doing a good(ish) job need to do is look at the data; don't listen to Rushi, look at what he has (and more importantly hasn't) done.

If you value the #NHS but think you might vote #Tory, then you need to get a grip - you cannot do both!

	Figures published by NHS England on Thursday showed 7.4mn people were queueing to begin hospital treatment by the end of April, up from 7.3mn in March, while about 2.2mn patients attended accident and emergency departments last month, the third-highest since records began.

About 40 per cent of patients were waiting more than 18 weeks to begin treatment against a target of 8 per cent, while 371,111 patients were queueing for a year, a rise from 359,798 in April. Some 95,135 were waiting for more than 65 weeks — a delay the health service has said it aims to eradicate by next April.

Meanwhile, 11,477 patients were waiting more than 18 months to start treatment, up from 10,737 a month earlier, despite the government’s pledge that no one would be waiting longer than this by the start of April. In all, 523 patients were waiting more than two years for treatment.

So what is the latest wheeze from the #Tories to address aspects of the #NHSCrisis?

yes, appeal to volunteers to help with discharging patients....

So, their workforce plan is to go head-to-head with #NHS staff over wages, while reducing investment in other aspects of the #healthservice, and then expect unpaid, volunteers to replace paid professionals;

Seldom has the #Tories defunding strategy been so blatantly applied;

Potential mechanisms include more unrecognized present-on-admission infections causing transmissions to other patients and health care workers, who in turn infected other patients."

Blood spot card with 4 blood spot circles on the card. 1st circle is filled in pretty well, the next two circles are filled in about 80%, and the last circle is about 50-60% filled in.

Today I am mostly thinking about the deeply British irony in printing money to honour the #NHS National Health Service instead of actually paying them enough to keep up with inflation.

Excited to use the new 75 pence piece though! It’s a great illustration of how much inflation has raised the cost of living of what used to be 50p in 2009. Meanwhile, even after the pay deal in 2023, nurse pay is down 6.2% in real terms vs 2010/11 (source: nuffield trust)

On the right there are a bunch of boak-worthy words “gratitude dedication pride care kind dignity respect empathy” etc, with the words “National Health Service 75” in bold in the centre. Weirdly this sort of implies that it’s a 75 pence piece, though despite the jokey wording in the toot, such a coin does not exist.

So, of course, #Tory defunding of the NHS will continue, while #SteveBarclay admits that past commitment(s) to 40 new hospitals, really includes refurbishments & extensions rather than 40 new #hospitals.

the #NHS is not safe in #Tory hands

No organisation in crisis can afford to keep losing experienced #workers with extensive tacit knolwedge.

So, of course, a key part of the #Tory engineered #NHS crisis is the continuing rise in staff resignations... which other than a short reprieve during #Covid has continued to rise over the last decade.

Abuse staff, under-pay them & over-work them and this is the result... and don't be thinking this is an unfortunate accident, its what the #Tories want!
