Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

From the information leaflet that was sent with my appointment: Who can be screened? The NHS invite all men for screening in the year they turn 65. What about men aged over 65? Men aged over 65 who have not been screened before can contact their local service to arrange a test. My appointment is at ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

According to the invite I got, if you have to cancel you can rearrange any time that is more convenient as it's done as a drop in clinic. The Mitsubishi ultrasound and doppler scanning equipment is very versatile. I have already had three different areas checked out with the kit. I will be rocking u...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

You have fallen foul of the script readers Plaques. They cannot deviate as they only have a flow chart to follow which will usually only have a couple of possible outcomes. What you really need is second line support, if you have to ring them again ask nicely to be escalated, it usually works for me.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Went to the docs this morning, second appointment slot to see Hassan. I asked him about my flu jab and he says I would be better with it than without so I will attend on Saturday unless I get an emergency slot for my op this week. Likewise for my abdominal Aortic scan, might as well attend if it can...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I believe there are two variant jabs. One for the under 65's and another for those over. Apparently I qualify for the latter even though I am still 64, I am in my 65th year. :extrawink:

Back in the mid 50's I can remember the two immaculately dressed Sikh gentlemen who used to come round with Betterware goods. Their suitcases looked like Aladdin's Cave to a little lad.
