Sorry folks for not finding the thread that started this whole paper chase off but it has been so long waiting for a response from our public servants that I have almost lost the plot let alone the thread. I e mailed the loser in response to the p1ss poor performance on TV when questioned regarding Health care for servicemen and women and ex service personnel finally broke earlier this year. I know that like many I was screaming at the tv for the smug git to answer the question that concerned me most. Post service care for veterans. I was promised that after my service (perhaps promised is a poor choice of words with politicians) that should I be in need of medical care that the QEMH or whoever I lived closest to would be able to carry out necessary care for me and bill the NHS to ensure I need not wait 18 months in a queue for a hip op. Remember I live in Gods waiting room and although the quality of surgery is high here back before the New money no object NHS the waiting list for the bone crushers was very long. I once waited 2 years for an appointment to see a specialist to look at my knee injured in TA service after leaving the regulars.Not that he could do anything with it apart from recommending a change in lifestyle, ie no more running. None of that is the issue. I wrote an email to the slimy drain on the public purse. The email was:Mr Twigg, I am a veteran, No xxxxxxxx and served several operational tours at the behest of the Govt of the day. I am concerned that there is now no longer any priority service as shown in last nights newsnight program. The worst part about the program, after the discovery that I can no longer be treated as an ex serviceman at any Military Hospital as when I left my regiment in 1988, was that in addition to having to queue for treatment with everyone else for injuries I recieved in service is that you could only answer questions about serving soldiers and their treatment at Selly Oak. The question asked By Mr Paxman were pertaining to all including ex servicemen and women and yet you chose not to answer this important part of the question. Why are we being abandoned into the general NHS population when the promises made about our treatment which it seems your Govt has decided will not be honoured. Shame on you and the so called public service. His response has finally arrived for what its worth and despite bullsh1tting about the best service being the NHS he hasnt answered the question regarding closure of the hospitals and the subsequent loading of veterans on the NHS who would be better cared for in a military hospital. This happens in Canada and the US! [/img] [/img] Comments please folks. The slimy git has left this since the 23rd January and is still not answering the main point of the question!
