The reception-area became very busy. People coming and going. Mothers (and fathers) with young children. Some in buggies. Some children crying and bawling. One young girl, shreiking, for what ever reason. Was it because she was ill, in pain perhaps? Or was she just having a temper-tantrum? Suddenly there was an incident. A young girl, who had been taking with one of the receptionists collapsed. Immediately there were nurses running in, as well as one of the doctors. They crowded around the girl. I'm not sure what had happened. Did she have a heart attack? A stroke? A wheelchair was bought in and she was taken away to one of the surgeries. I have to say I was a little impressed by how the staff dealt with the incident.
Carol was called in. Her name came up on the digital display. Her appointment was delayed because of the incident with the young girl, but considering how many staff came running in to assist, it's not a surprise the appointment was later than originally booked. About five minutes later Carol came back out and she told me that a prescription had been sent via email to Sainsbury's pharmacy. We drove to Sainsbury's in Witan Gate as we had to do shopping and collected the prescription, which turned out to be antibiotics.
