Good old NHS

The whole threats from HM Government to withdraw benefits from British Citizens who come from European countries can easily be circumvented in respect of NHS treatment.

Not for the NHS Covid App but for the main NHS App, you need to upload your passport to be accepted onto the platform. That is ample proof of citizenship. So the NHS cannot withhold treatment on the basis of notices that you are not British, if you up-loaded a valid British passport.

I am currently contacting service providers and also send a copy of my British passport to them in case they get notice from HM Government to stop services, despite all the phone calls.

There is no excuse for this. What government cannot keep their records up-to-date?

Or is it that somebody who has a strong hate for all Europeans, has meddled with the data and destroyed it? It really reeks of hate of Europeans and trying to make their life hard.

Britain has a not so proud tradition of racism towards migrants. The European example shows it has nothing to do with colour.

Just wonder what will happen to the new immigrants from Afghanistan in a few years times. Make sure you keep your paperwork and old passports.

flu vaccination

Haven’t had a flu vaccination for years. I tried it once but then got severe dandruff. I don’t know whether that is connected but it put me off.

Managed to cope with winter illness by exercising and keeping the body busy. Of course that is hard when we have lock-down, gyms and pools are closed. Apparently there is a debate in parliament about this on Monday, 23. November 2020 as a lot of people are cheesed off about gyms and pools being closed.

Just as Adam Peaty managed to set a new 100 m breaststroke short course record only last week. We are all fuming, we can’t get into pools.

That is me as official at the British summer champs.

Now I am gettting these letters, telling me that I need to book a flu vaccination because it is advisable

I go on one of the countless health apps. There is

My GP – NHS – Patient Access – NHS Covid and now also Healthily.

Why is it not possible to opt for digital letters from the NHS via the NHS app? Why do I need to go onto healthily?

Anyhow, when I tried to make an appointment for the flu jab, as those letters more than make people hysterical, I could not get one. The pharmacies are all out of flu vaccine. Doh.

So I can’t get access to the flu jab but I am promised a speedy Covid jap when it comes out. Doh again.

New NHS app

Got this message from my surgery that there is a new NHS app. I downloaded and registered. In order to do that, you need to

  1. take a photo of your passport
  2. record a video of yourself.

Once all this has been verified they accept you as user.

But if you are worried that the police use facial recognition, think NHS.
