Diabetes and NHS care

I feel so strongly bout this. This was a wee exchange between a good m8 and I just now:

His post:

They haven’t a clue what it is like watching a diabetic deal with this condition…planning meals, calculating insulin doses for the day, weighing your food, several injections each day, frequent blood testing to prevent hypo/hyper……

I would like to highlight the government removing the subsidy for blood test strips. Diabetics need VERY frequent blood testing 5+ times a day. The cost of strips is £70.00 outcome reduced blood glucose testing and more hospital admissions from hyper or hypo glycemic Diabetes . . . I am asking if everyone could put this as their status for 1 hour. I’m pretty sure I know the ones that will. Think of someone you know or love who has or has had diabetes. My hope is that in 2017 a cure will be found. Will you post it for 1 hour? To honor those who have fought or are fighting diabetes.😁

Hope to see it as your

status. Copy and paste,

My reply:

M8 I feel ur pain and concern but the NHS are so overstretched they are only providing acute services-I’ve seen it in dental practice since 1996 and the picture is only gonna get worse. What happens is the Drs are trained to senior consultant level in the NHS and then jump ship to the Private sector. Now realistically if u r a dr and can earn shed loads more money in private practice vast majority would. What government should be doing is saying right it’s taken u x years to get to Consultant standard in the NHS YOU HAVE TO SPEND y years in the NHS. At the minute it’s too easy to jump ship. I can’t see a rosy picture for the NHS as it is run by less able bodied people shall we say!!!!!

Perfect fried egg and toast

Yep it sure was!!! I heated 1/2 teaspoon veggie oil in non stick pan and then added a Skea egg. Fried gently for two minutes-meanwhile toast was in toaster. After turning the egg I further cooked for two minutes to get a runny yolk. I then turned onto a warmed plate and finished the toast in the same pan as I used to fry the egg. Then served the egg on the toast and sprinkled with plenty of freshly milled black pepper, Maldron sea salt and Tabasco. I let the yolk soak into the bread…..amazing and so simple!!!!!
