If Only It Was Run Like McDonald's
A HEALTH chief has accused patients of clogging up Edinburgh Royal Infirmary by treating the accident and emergency department “like McDonald’s”....Mr Farquharson said: “The main challenge is in the increasing number of the public accessing A&E in the first place....
Margaret Watt, chairwoman of the Scotland Patients Association, said the NHS should get tough with people abusing A&E services.
She said: “We have got to educate them, to say ‘these are the kind of things you take to your doctor’. We should be saying ‘you have to be registered with a GP and you can’t be accessing treatment from the NHS unless you’re registered with a GP’.”
Bloody customers eh? Turning up and wanting service! Just because they pay for it doesn't mean it is run for them.
