I would imagine this happens a lot

A mother-of-two died suddenly while “waiting on the phone for nearly two hours for a doctor’s appointment”, her family has claimed.

Relatives allege that the popular baker Helena Maffei – described as “the soul of Kidderminster” – was trying to get a GP appointment for breathing difficulties when she collapsed at home in front of her 28-year-old son.

Whether on the phone or in person. You’re feeling a bit peaky is when you go to the doctors. Sometimes feeling a bit peaky is the signal that something serious is about to happen.

I can imagine that death rates while waiting to see the doctor are rather higher than those that apply at other times like, say, waiting for a burger or whatever.

  1. Similarly, Lots of people die in hospitals.
    Therefore hospitals are dangerous.
    Therefore we should close down all hospitals and ban them – it would save a lot of lives.

    With logic like this, I should be a politician.

    Although, on a serious note. She had breathing difficulties. Why didn’t she go to the hospital?

  2. I can imagine that death rates while waiting to see the doctor are rather higher than those that apply at other times like, say, waiting for a burger or whatever.

    Stay home, shut up, protect the National Burger Service!

    CD: She had breathing difficulties. Why didn’t she go to the hospital?

    Perhaps she was too scared to venture into a hospital thanks to government propaganda.

  3. “Surely ‘breathing difficulties’ should be dealt with by calling an ambulance?”

    Or jumping into a car and being driven to A & E.

  4. What happened to Hand-Cock’s “phone before you go to A&E or you wont get in” shite? Last Nov that was being introduced . But I know several people who have just gone along to A&E and been treated as normal since then.

    Is it another Blojob Johnson genius-level play that has flopped and been quietly forgotten?

    Also –about this time last year the 28 day con-vid tests rule was increased to 60 days. I am sure it was but all media pundits still blather about 28 days. Of course 60 days would enable many more ordinary deaths to be re-labelled as con-vid. Does anyone know if the rule was ever changed back to 28 day test limit? I have never heard that it has but I might have missed it.

  5. My wife took me to emergency 6 months ago as she wasn’t happy with my breathing and a nurse came out of Emergency (wife wasn’t allowed in) and told her off for bringing me. How I was supposed to have gotten there she didn’t say. I subsequently spent the better part of 2 weeks in hospital so my wife, herself a nurse who could go to work I’m the hospital but not come into emergency with me, had hardly been fussing over nothing. Did make me wonder how many people weren’t as lucky as me or had been dissuaded from coming in and what the consequences were.
