Rules, rules, rules – We’re doomed

My 99 year old father – Lord Moor Common – was summoned for a blood test this week. Given his age we asked if he could have this done at home, pointing out that his Doctor, the Flu-jab nurse and various other carers were all able to pay home visits.

“Oh no” came the swift reply from the Receptionist. “The nurse isn’t insured to visit his house – what would happen if she had an accident”

Well given my father still manages to get round his entire house unaided I am somewhat concerned at the physical capabilities of current nursing profession.

Needless to say once we got him to the Surgery he made his views on the subject very clear!

He’ll make the 100 yet!
