I have to say such aspects are indeed part and parcel of the service. If you spend enough time there, which unfortunately I seem to (sorry for using up all your taxes), you can see how they have been considered and worked into the operation of the place.
Just adds to the amazing levels of respect the staff who work there deserve.
There will always be exceptions to the norm, like a couple of adorable ladies we met yesterday, but for a service that is there at all times, ready to save lives and make us well again. One which is in such high demand, by both those seriously ill, and those who don’t understand the other services available, they are bloody amazing indeed.
Waiting is frustrating, especially when you see people who you deem don’t need to be there. But sometimes it’s hard to read. I can’t walk properly at the moment, but was not there yesterday for myself. But that didn’t stop a nurse offering me assistance, as I looked like I needed it.
I totally agree with the sense of entitlement comment. And think that applies to so many things, and is the cause of many of societies issues these days. It’s my favourite word right by now.
