Ending Blog

First written June 2018 and finished September 2018


After giving it a lot of thought over the last few months, I have decided to stop writing this blog.

This is for a few reasons, but first and foremost I am struggling to put my thoughts into writing,  without saying the wrong thing and sounding rude or aggressive.

I know I am getting very tired these days, and struggling to think clearly, but I guess this is a build up of medical problems  which are starting to make life very difficult. 

However I was starting to  think of closing the blog down in January and then in June,  because of my problems of putting my thoughts into words. 

I have re-used a few old blogs over the last  few months, in the hope of getting myself motivated, but realised that it's not going to work 

I have enjoyed doing this over the years, but I have lost total  interest,  but will let the blog run as it may help others.

I vaguely remember the fact this blog was  started by mistake, but it's been a journey, which I never expected, and lead to many new friends over the last few years.

My wife and I looked at the blog the other month,  and realised that it's been read by nearly 260-000 people in 120 countries,  which was quite an achievement, and one I am pleased with.

It's hard to accept that this post took nearly 6 months to write properly and get ready to send off, but that's life 

Shortly I will also be stopping using Twitter, for the same reasons. 

But life goes on. Thank you for all of your kind comments over the years.
Best wishes

Changes with in the NHS

The NHS is now discussing reforming the letters sent out by hospital doctors, in the hope of removing the jargon, 

The whole idea is to make these letters easy to understand by patients, without all of the medical jargon which comes within them,  but some doctors argue that these letters should be digital, thereby cutting costs, and by that, I guess emails

When will these officials ever accept that many people including elderly, do not understand computers etc, and therefore will not have access to digital letters

However as i said before, its not just the elderly, it covers quite a lot of people living within the UK many of who simply don't understand social media

Will these officials ever take this on board, or is this another way to keep people in the dark.

Considering the fact that most medical letters are written out by secretaries etc, not doctors, I wonder just what these people are hoping to achieve by this project.
