Mr Roderick, who has a herd of pedigree Herefordshire cattle and 100 sheep on his 85 acres, said: ‘If I call the vet out to one of my calves they are usually here within an hour. But we had to wait for almost five hours after making a 999 call and by that time it was too late.’
…but the taxpayer pays the NHS, so who cares if they do a good job or not? They get paid regardless!
Similarly, if I ring my vet for an appointment, it’s ‘Certainly madam, when would you like to come?’ Whereas my mum has rung for a GP appointment three times in three successive days, only to be told on each occasion ‘The lists aren’t out yet, call back tomorrow’.
Privatise this useless white elephant. Now. Make them sek out our custom, not sit on their arses getting paid regardless of results.
