PENSIONER LIES FOR THREE HOURS ON RAIN-SOAKED PAVEMENT FOR AMBULANCE

Welcome to Britain where the welfare of benefit-bandits comes before the needs of the native-born British, a sordid nation where corporate media launders the misdeeds of the inept political elite.
A 75-year-old woman was left lying on the freezing concrete, with a badly broken wrist, for three hours as she waited for an ambulance, in a stark reminder of the crisis facing our NHS.
Pat McDonald, a former NHS nurse with a number of serious health problems and disabilities, was leaving her accommodation in Birkenhead on Monday afternoon when she slipped and fell and badly broke her wrist, while suffering other injuries. Her sister was with her and called for an ambulance at around 12.50pm, but it didn’t arrive until around three hours later.
Pat’s daughter Katie, a senior NHS nurse, rushed to be with her mum, but didn’t want to move her in case of further injuries. The family covered Pat with clothes, blankets and hot water bottles as the long wait for help continued. After the incident, Katie hit out at the treatment of the health service by the Tory government, with A and E waiting times now the worst since records began.
She said: “The paramedics were fantastic when they arrived and really apologetic for the wait. This is the government’s fault.’
The 35-year-old, who has been a nurse for 13 years, said the scene at Arrowe Park Hospital when they eventually arrived offered an insight into the extraordinary pressure the NHS is currently under.
“There were four corridors full of paramedics waiting with patients, they can’t leave them until they get a bed and there just aren’t enough beds. Cuts and a lack of investment in our NHS mean that wards are being closed all over the country because there aren’t enough nurses to staff them.
“That then means that there are fewer beds available in Accident & Emergency. Therefore paramedics are stuck waiting in corridors because they aren’t able to hand patients over to the nursing staff until there are trolleys available to put them on, sometimes for their entire shift.
“Can you imagine going into a job to help and care for people and then having to battle every day with no space to care for them, having the weight of 300 plus poorly patients in a department and god knows how many waiting for ambulances on your shoulders, constantly playing who is the least unwell?’
“All this just so you can make enough space for the next emergency on their way in, all the while thinking that you are letting the other patients down? And this is the result, elderly people in agony, cold, wet, unable to move and left for hours.”
Katie says that over the past five years the situation for those working in and using the NHS has dramatically worsened. “The pressures are unbelievable. There are nurses weeping every day because they simply can’t offer the level of care to people that they need.
“Shifts feel like jumping on and off a hamster wheel, often you go home and come back 12 hours later and the same patients are still there waiting to be seen.”
Earlier this month it was revealed that A and E waiting times are at their worst on record. Less than three-quarters of people who sought care at A and E units in England in October were treated and then discharged, admitted or transferred within four hours, the smallest proportion since the target was introduced in 2004.
The problems at Arrowe Park specifically were highlighted when an investigation found that one patient in April 2018 waited in an ambulance for over six hours from arrival before they were handed over to nursing staff.
