Thanks to your for your post elegran I have just called Drs to ask if my repeat prescription had been forwarded electronically to chemist as I had rather foolish forgot to call at the chemist before closing and I need meds for weekend. As its Saturday tomorrow chemist would not be able to sort if there was a problem.
All computers down so reception could not check. Dr issued another script. And the lovely receptionist even though surgery was now closed , waited for me to rush up and collect my prescription.
A pain in the but for me, but an absolute nightmare for hospital, ambulance services and Drs surgery.
Well so far, my local hospital hasn't been affected, but I suspect it's only a matter of time. Which would be a real bummer for me because I'm booked in for surgery on Monday . But then I think of people who need emergency care and it puts my situation in perspective. I've waited a year for this surgery, so I guess I can wait a bit longer if necessary. But for anyone who desperately needs life-saving medical treatment, well it doesn't bear thinking about, does it?
