I am out of Hospital/Left wing rubbish from 38 Degrees

I am now out of Hospital after having my left knee replaced, so I now have 2 replacement Knees and replacement hip. Judo/Sambo has been good to me as the wife’s says God doesn’t pay his debts in money. Would I do Judo/Sambo all over again? YES, I have travelled to 40 different countries won World-class medals, where would I have done that if it weren’t for Judo/Sambo. Have to admit this knee was a lot more painful then the last one I had done about 6 years ago, 6 days on I am still in pain. John reckons it is because I am getting old and have become soft

Yet I do get annoyed when the left wing organisations like 38 Degrees who try and pretend they are an independent body and start the normal rant  about how the Government doesn’t care about the NHS and their only answer is to throw more money at this Cash Cow. What the NHS needs is be more efficient, he needs to cut back on non medical staff i.e. the men and women in suits, it needs to look at wages of these people and senior Doctors and consultants, it needs to look NHS tourists i.e. people coming from other counties using our system and then not paying. The NHS needs a good overhaul and if that means privatising some parts of it so be it, Left wing dinosaurs like 38 Degrees need stop thinking we are in the 1950's, if we listen to them and their socialist nonsense  the NHS will collapse.

My own experience is an example of how inefficient the NHS is in September 2014 I was told I would require a knee replacement and this would be done in January 2015 so I prepared my whole year around that that date, I am President of Two Grappling organisation and needed to travel for Events. Remember you should not fly for three months after a major operation. Soon after seeing the surgeon I received a letter confirming what he said, then in early November I received another letter stating that surgeon had left and would I mind a locum which I agreed to. By the end of December I received no communication from the NHS so then the phone calls started and all I got was an answer machine by now we are in to January it was only when I made a formal complaint that I got answers. It seems the locum was not starting till January 18th and had to see 80 people before me and the had arranged a Pre opp session on February 24th, I then asked the obvious question when will it be I was told there 80 people before me and they only do 3 a week if that was the case, I would have to wait till July

So my only other option was to go private which I did at the Spire Alexander Walderslade. This was a marvellous hospital, kind nurses and staff, senior medical staff that actually talked to you as a human being rather then a slab of meat, no wards here you had your own room. Obviously this comes at a cost £10,500 to be exact and as someone who saved all his life and paid Income Tax and NI I resented having to pay but it was something I needed to do. Interestingly enough the Hospital was doing some refurbishment, I complained to a Manager that I was unhappy about the drilling etc. with in ½ hour I was given £1000 compensation. NOW WOULD THAT HAVE Happened in  the NHS NO!

 Below is some propaganda from 38 Degrees they continue to send this rubbish

Dear Martin,

At 11am on Saturday 28th February, thousands of 38 Degrees members are coming together in town centres across England to stand up for our NHS. 

This government has pushed our NHS to breaking point: selling parts off to private companies and cutting funding in important areas. [1]

NHS doctors and experts over the last few weeks have made one thing clear: if we want an NHS after May’s general election, we need to be campaigning now. [2] Together, we can run a huge campaign over the next two months - with a simple message to MP candidates everywhere: ‘Save our NHS’.

In two weeks' time, 38 Degrees members are meeting on high streets to gather thousands of signatures on local ‘Save our NHS’ petitions. We'll remind people that our NHS is a precious, life-saving service - and ask them to join us in saying no to cuts and privatisation.

Once you RSVP you’ll be able to chat to other 38 Degrees members in Sittingbourne and Sheppey, and talk about your plans for the day. You’ll also be sent a parcel with everything you need to make the day a success - petition sheets, leaflets and more!

Can you come along and help gather signatures for your local ‘Save our NHS' petition? 

As the election draws near, your local petition will be delivered to each and every candidate who wants to win our votes. Together we can make sure every politician in every constituency knows that if they intend to run down or sell off our health service, they've got a fight on their hands.

Click here to RSVP and register for your pack: 

We need the NHS at our best and worst moments in life. It belongs to all of us and we’re all proud of it. Helping get more signatures on the petition in Sittingbourne and Sheppey would be a massive boost to our nationwide push to protect our NHS for future generations.

Please RSVP today, so 38 Degrees members in Sittingbourne and Sheppey can collect as many signatures as possible: 

Thanks for being involved and see you on the streets,

Rachel, Nat, Blanche and the 38 Degrees team

PS: There’s a lot going on at the moment, 38 Degrees members are meeting up in our communities like never before! Following on from our big election survey, we’re meeting up to discuss the results and plan actions together. If you’d like to see if there’s an election event near you click here:
