BRITAINS NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE:
I ordered a cab for 1pm.
To take me to the hospital at Poole.
It is some considerable distance away,
But I felt oh so cool/
It cost me £20 sterling to get there,
Once there I booked in at reception.
I got some peculiar looks.
As they proceeded to mention.
It seems the Epilepsy clinic had been cancelled.
A letter had been sent in May.
Telling me to attend on June 8th
I didn't recieve it....no way.
The consultant it appears was none to pleased,
At my not turning up that day.
The adviser was not sure if he will see me at all,
Is all that she could say.
I left the hospital by cab again,
Another £20 sterling to pay.
I , on the way back home
Stopped at the surgery.
They didn't get a letter from the hospital,
Changing the appointment day.
They are as confused as I am.
I'm fed up with this day after day.
I think I will contact my MP.
As to ask what is happening to the NHS.
I don't know what's going on,
And neither can anyone else I guess.
