Yes, I've been away for a bit, I apologise unreservedly now.
You see, in the words of modern medical education, I have been experiencing the patient pathway from an alternative perspective.
I've been a punter.
If you've ever been in hospital, you know it's not a pleasant experience. Let me tell you, it's even worse when you know exactly how fucked up it all is.
I dunno whether other patients would remind nurses when they need time critical medication, I dunno whether other patients would question inappropriate medication prescribing or administration, I dunno whether other patients would be as nervous as I was if they knew too much about their condition.
Anyway, back now and only slightly worse for wear.
(And I would like that thank everyone who sent get well soon messages, it was very much appreciated)
