Other users responded en masse.  At the time of writing his tweet had garnered 18.6k likes, 3,295 retweets, an additional 490 quote tweets and 1.4k responses.

Here are some of the responses:

Wishfullthinking tweeted: “I have personally witnessed that at our local GP practice. Whilst attending an appointment a patient before me asked to make a future appointment. He was told he must phone. Went outside and called on his mobile. The same receptionist answered the call and booked the appointment.”

Rachel Clynick tweeted: “I had a similar thing a while ago. Turned up to a hospital app with my disabled son was told we don’t have an appointment and asked if they could check when the app was and she said you’ll have to ring. I rang and the person on phone said ‘now’. Passed the phone to the receptionist so the person on phone could confirm. We were seen in that clinic there and then.”

Dankel182 tweeted: “I actually had this. Except she made me go out of the building to call because you can only be in the building if you have an appointment, apparently due to covid.”

Rockybeach tweeted: “It’s all a bl**dy joke. I rang up a month ago for an appointment and can’t get one until 4th August. What’s going on?

Mark Mc- useless eater. Sod off Sunak tweeted: “GP receptionist told me off for being late for an appointment even though I was early. When I politely said she was mistaken she painfully accepted it although without saying so. And then pointed to a sign saying ‘ Any abusive language will not be tolerated ‘ Beauties, aren’t they?”

Liz responded: “Yes, noticed these signs have popped up in clinics and surgeries … so they can be as ignorant or dismissive as they want to the patient and the patient has to stand there and take it otherwise they’re classed as being abusive even if they don’t actually use abusive language.”

Steve Johnson tweeted: “Our recorded message now says the receptionist will decide whether or not you need to see a doctor. Apart from the fact that they are not trained, what has happened to our confidentiality rights?”

PKS tweeted: “I was told GP won’t see me & nurse prescribed antibiotics over the phone. 2 weeks later no improvement but GP still won’t see me & I am told they will arrange chest X-ray. This week I went to hospital & they found blood clots in my lungs & leg. You can literally die waiting.”

Jill White tweeted: “87-year-old dad just called to say he won’t make his twice weekly visit for skin treatment as he has covid. The receptionist says it will be recorded as DNA [did not attend] and as he’s already missed one (due to said covid) he will be unable to attend and referred back to an 8-month waiting list! #MAD”

Quizzywizzy Novelty Birthday Gifts tweeted: “Absolute craziness. My darling lady couldn’t get an appointment and was given a diagnosis of probable angina over the phone. Passed away less than two months later with metastatic cancer. Sorry to say our NHS is a shambles.”

No new normal thankyou tweeted: “We are no longer able to rely on the NHS to care for us….”

Linda Gianni tweeted: “I received this text [see image below] from my surgery yesterday. I’m going to ask them if they would like me to do my own smear test and flu jab seeing as if they can’t be arsed doing my yearly BP test and blood test.”

Mr Ouija tweeted: “That assumes everyone has access to a phone, or that everyone is able to use a phone. They can make an appointment in person anything less would be discrimination against those who are deaf, have speech problems etc.”

Misc. endeavours tweeted: “What about people who have no mobile or landline? Why does everything have to revolve around technology over humanity? We’ve got to pushback on this kind of thing – it’s not acceptable.”

Caroline Gurney responded: “And for those of us who are deaf, having the phone as the only means of access is a nightmare. The speech-to-text phone service can’t navigate automated systems which offer multiple options.”

Willow tweeted: “If I call up to make an appointment, I am given one that’s usually weeks away… if I use the consult I’ve managed to be able to speak to a GP 2 hours later and was told to go to the surgery… NHS is on its knees.”

NHSobserver tweeted: “Robotic behaviour is endemic in NHS. I encounter it every day of my working life. They work on the principle – how to make a simple thing complicated.”

Bent Copper responded: “It costs lives, dozens of medics blindly accepted a diagnosis I didn’t even have as the person before them wrote it in my notes.”

NHSobserver replied: “Oh yes once it’s in the notes, impossible to change. Many patients have a documented “allergy” on closer questioning it’s not an allergy but a common side effect. E.g., penicillin causing diarrhoea. Limits their treatment.”

End FINANCIAL SLAVERY was puzzled: “Why on earth would you want to see your local euthanasia centre??? Looking for a quicker exit from this realm? ‘Cause if you are, they serve up all types of poison for you…what do you fancy?

  • Heart attack
  • Liver failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Brain damage
  • Stroke
  • They have something 4u”

People may want to presume the poor state of affairs with the NHS is due to the pressures as a result of a “pandemic.”  However, a 2018 Daily Mail article, titled ‘As receptionists win more power to decide who sees a doctor… how to get past the despot on your GP’s front desk’, stated receptionists had been instructed to get tough when arranging appointments. “These staff, who are not medics, now get four hours of training that qualifies them to decide whether or not you see a doctor, or need another kind of help, under the 2016 Care Navigation scheme.” The scheme was launched to ease pressure on GPs and in 2018 it had 10,600 UK practices signed up.

Daily Mail noted that under the 2009 NHS Constitution, GP practices must try to fulfil a patient’s request to see a specific doctor. But in reality, they can refuse if there are reasonable grounds. Surgeries also have a duty of care to provide an appropriate service. That means accepting the receptionist’s decision in most cases.

Daily Mail offered some suggestions on how patients could navigate their way around a receptionist for the best possible outcome.

Initially it was three weeks to flatten the curve and save the NHS (an NHS that successive Government’s had brought to collapse anyway) but turned out they destroyed the NHS as we know it (and dentistry). A cynic would think this was their plan all along.

Think of a term about the NHS being jam packed … something like “No beds for patients in the NHS” OR WHATEVER, but something meaning the NHS is in crisis.

You can trace the same damn headlines back for 12 years … YES … 12 years and why ?; because whilst they fool us throwing more money at it allegedly, they are ripping wards, A&E, beds, staff outof the system.

We are being played.

But your taxes did not go down as the cuts are made did they? So they are misappropriating your taxes to other things you probably do not need.

In a way it does, but I am not arguing, just saying. Most deaths are in the elderly, elderly that have some sort of pensions .. at least the state pensions in Europe for instance ..take the pensioners out, pension payments dramatically decreased or even eliminated in cases.

I do understand the depopulation agenda as well and whilst we are seeing increasing numbers “falling” – I think it is a longer term thing using sterilisation from the jabs, break down of the family structure, all this LGBT stuff and so on and so on – but we are already seeing a decline in new born across the globe and a drop of fertility.

Months ago, in Australia, I went to see a doc and was told I would have to do a phone appointment, as unpoisoned. I was too big of a risk to others to be in the clinic, I guess was the assumption.

So I go home and phone up and book a phone appointment. It was OK as I only needed some eye drops prescribed and didn’t need to see a doc (hopefully if you really had to see a doc in person, they’d bend the rules – who knows). When the time for the phone appointment arrived, the doc phoned me and prescribed the eye drops then says to come into the clinic and pick the prescription up!

Also, many people probably took the poison because of this blackmailing by the medical industry that you might not be seen by a doc or admitted to hospital, if unpoisoned.

The nhs is no longer fit for purpose. All the money spent on it and it is in a shambles. I do not know one person who does not have a similar story of the simple attempt to make an appointment. Two year wait for new knee, hip, cataract, hernia. Husband has been treated like the game pass the parcel. Seen in Exeter deem clinic, referred to surgeon, in Torquay, sent to Newton Abbot for an X-ray and will have surgery in Teignmouth. If the surgery he needs is offered. The reason his follow-up was thirty miles away, covid. Okayyyyyyy. Husband 80 years old. When the doctor in Torquay heard his story, they just laughed.

Yes, they should rename the nhs, the National euthanasia service. There is NO WAY things will improve. Ask any GP.

People say “the NHS is broken” and such like. But, the truth is it was never working in the first place! Its founder was Aneurin Bevan of Cardiff, a Marxist Socialist! “A bad tree cannot bear good fruit.” As the country became increasingly more ungodly people became less reliant on God and put their trust in the NHS and blindly trusted the medical men! I don’t say that all doctors in the NHS at its inception and in subsequent years were unprincipled and uncaring, most certainly not! but clearly, reading this article it ought to be obvious to any thinking person that the “fruit” became increasingly rotten as doctors, surgeons, nurses, administrators and the rest (the career people!) became more interested in their salaries, cars, and positions, rather than seeing the medical profession as a calling.

I would not want to be seen by any doctor that is “in the know” about what is going on in our day, would you? If they are still employed by the NHS, what can they be but rotten? They must know what is going on, or at least have suspicions by now, surely? This stuff is all in the open.

I have been an anti vaxxer for some 25 years now, and haven’t sought a doctor for any reason whatsoever prior to that time, and since. However, I have used the A&E department twice, once to set a broken bone, and the other to have a tick removed (yes it hurts having a tooth removed without an anesthetic!). A distinction must be made between restorative medical work like this and diseases, where the medics are “stabbing in the dark” as it were; pushing Big Pharma’s vaccines and drugs! Big Pharma is certainly pulling the strings!

They say “crack cancer!” but it will never be cracked because cancer, and the multitudes of other designer diseases have been induced by the pharmaceutical companies through vaccines and drugs-create the problem, then charge a fortune to ‘fix’ it!

These days the NHS is a branch of Big Pharma and just another example of what happens when you grab the money and allow an all-powerful boss to call the shots. We’ve spent years lazily sleeping while huge organisations take over of our lives. Now apparently they want to take over the world. We have very little time left to turn things around before totalitarianism wraps us in her stifling coat. We must start thinking smart and small NOW.

I came to the realization years ago that the government (ANY government) can screw up a wet dream. Once they get their bloated, bureaucratic hands on anything, you can kiss it goodbye.

Whilst I enjoyed reading this piece, there are important matters missed. So sorry, just a 3.

But first, regards “As receptionists win more power to decide who sees a doctor… how to get past the despot on your GP’s front desk’, …. not just the UK hey ?; my lad got a job through the likes of manpower temp agency in a major hospital … as the receptionist and decides if patients will see or not see the doctor – even he does not understand it. Fortunately the wife and sister are nurses in the same hospital, so he has help … butwhen recruited and even now, the management do not know the family link.

Anyway, the NHS. That is going to be cutby30-40% in the near future as it is all digitised and privatised .. it is being privatised by stealth, by outsourcing all the different bits, so nobody sees the overall scheme.

Starting slowly towards the “Global Health Service” = https://www.hsjjobs.com/article/6-000-plus-jobs-to-be-cut-at-new-nhs-england-

GP’s as we know them with face to face meetings will be gone, zoom call whilst we are all monitored at home bydigital / IT gadgets.

Ambulances will be gone, apart from a few.

Euthanasia, good death, Liverpool pathway, End of life care .. will be monetarised. You will actually be given your own budget to die … yes seriously….. Beers and hookers for me.

It is all there, just need to look it up… oh it gets worse as well.

As a side issue, from a just over middle aged grumpy bloke, do we really need an email to confirm subscription every time we comment. May just be me, but I do not understand the logic of it. In this day and age for you whzz kids, you should be able to check where my comment comes from via at least the email, probably even more… why do I make a comment and then have to f-around confirming I made the damn comment in the first place ?. …it really p1sses me off.

Angry rant over – my apologies

Lord Sumption was one of Britain’s top judges. In November, 2022, he gave a prestigious lecture, the annual Freshfields lecture, to the Cambridge University Law Faculty

This eminent legal expert goes into great detail in describing the illegal actons of the UK government and at 26 mins 19 secs – he says the government took action to “deprive people of access to medical and dental services”. It might be better to star a few minutes before that time to get the wider context.

The NHS is the envy of the world, who in their right minds would want a pay or die system like the USA.
