MEDICAL PROFESSIONBBC 1 Breakfast Friday December 16th focus on the daily care of frail elderly people struggling to attempt to live out their last days on this earth alone.
Calls into question the working practices of all local medics. Medics get paid each and every year for each and every person registered in their area whether they are ill or not .......
When elderly frail people living in their own home alone, attempting to manage alone, the help that can be expected from these medics is along the lines of one five minute call each morning, just to check the person is still alive, and has taken pills prescribed.
Most people would much rather continue to live in their own homes. So where are these local medics at exactly? Where are the local DHSS authorities at exactly? Why is there not a local network with working practices that do actually work ....? A huge beaurocratic mess. No compassion. No true care, nothing.
