Had the misfortune to attend Moorfields Eye yesterday, I think the top eye hospital in the world. There was a four hour wait, but once passed that met some really dedicated, professional people, who despite the pressure were so good at what they were doing. Dealt with me in such a special way. I can't praise them enough. But one of the special nurses I was talking to had started work at 8 that morning and was working until 9 that night. Surely we should treat these special people better than this, they need a life as well. Which brings me to the wait you always have when you go to Accident and Emergency, surely with over a million unemployed in this country, we can have more trained nurses and doctors in Accident and Emergency Units.
