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.
