Norfolk County Council’s £7m overspend on adult services is criticised

It's so wrong.

Fat cats milk the NHS yet doctors like me have to turn away the sick to save cash

No doubt you read with anger and disbelief the Mail exposé of the astronomical salaries some NHS managers are being given. Anyone who pays into the NHS would feel the same.

When the carer has to be the cared for!

When a carer can’t care?

………. A clean duvet!

day 1 of my mum not being here

As you know I have had an operation and have put my care in the hands of the gods! Or in this case my husband Fred.

It is 2 weeks and 1 day since my operation and my mum left yesterday. With the parting words of ‘I will be back if you can’t manage’. Words that sent a chill through the heart of Fred! He has just about survived extended time with his mother in law! And I mean just!

I have run this operation and recuperation time like a military operation. There have been colour coded schedules and lists on the fridge for weeks. Everyone who is involved is helping (they did volunteer bless them) has been a located a colour. With the warning don’t mess with the schedule under threat of a court marshall! My mum was a located red obviously and was the only one who can fiddle with it. Mainly as even though I am 46 I am scared by her!
