Its amazing how detached you can get from life. Last night we spent an hour and a half in casualty. We were just sat in the walking wounded waiting room. A number of observations:
1- alcohol costs. Five police officers around one man.
2- alcohol costs. A daughter looking after a drunk and injured dad.
3- Wednesday is sports day. Two injured looking ankles with attached girlfriends.
4- smoking is inconvenient. Two people on drips going in an out for a fag.
5- NHS staff work very hard.
6- NHS car parking is expensive.
7- For every injury there is a story.
If you feel like life is a bit clean and clinical I challenge you to go and watch an A and E department. In sharp focus are people with their hurts, woes and worries.
