There's no fun in the NHS! There's no respect in the NHS, only rights!nqemt-p said:Hi all,
Have seen it mentioned in a lot of posts that after your time as an a/RMO, there are very few differences between the RAMC and the NHS.
I am thinking that there must be some differences (both clinically and non-clinically), would anybody be able to set me straight?
Soldiers and civilians in hospital are the same, they are patients.EX_STAB said:This is very similar to a question that I'd wished to ask so might I add:
Do soldiers or civilians make better patients?
NPfIT is the NHS one, its the most expensive civilian IT project. Read a piece in the Private Eye today and the future looks extremely bad. See NPfIT - Private Eye current editionnurse_ratched said:Which one's which!
Have a fair idea what you mean. I work as a paramedic, and it can be downright irritating when people won't scratch their own arrse to cure themselves. I call it the "magic wand syndrome," as they expect you to put on Merlin's magic hat, wave your wand, and hey presto, they can go back to killing themselves with fags and drink. Still though, at least some of them are intent on removing each other from the shallow end of the gene pool, which is an admirable task if you ask me.LtTrousersnake said:There's no fun in the NHS!

The NHS is just rubbish to work in! The patients in ths NHS feel they own you! It sticks in your throat when a bloke or woman who has never worked in his/her life, turn up late for their appointments, never adhere let alone comply with treatments then look down their noses at you when you are just trying to help! I am just finishing a specialist training period in the NHS and I fecking can't stand the place!
Very true, but a minority of people will be rude and abusive no matter how you treat them. They confuse being angry with being in control. It can be sad to watch as they probably learned this behaviour from their parents, the vicious circle. But sympathy tends to go out the window once you have been the target of that abuse. We are only human afterall.Patients Attitude depends an awful lot on your approach and often mirrors that of your own.
That sounds pretty interesting. I have another question, although it's kind of off this topic- what are the opportunities for, what we would call "pre-hospital emergency care" in civilian healthcare. Is there much opportunity for work outside of the clinics or field hospitals, or are you pretty much tied to the bedside? (if you have a nurse that's into that sort of thing, of course )Your patients in the Military will often be acute presentations rather than chronic illnesses; plenty of sports, mil training injury, mil trauma etc
