I went to see my neurologist today at Charing Cross (that’s the hospital not the station – though I do wonder sometimes!) They see the Parkinson’s patients in rooms off the narrowest corridor you can imagine: not only that, but they use the corridor as a waiting area – so you can imagine what it’s like, seated Parkinson’s sufferers at all sorts of angles: coats, bags, arms, legs and sticks poking out everywhere, so the newly-called patient has to negotiate this obstacle course before they can take their seat – if there is one – adjacent to their specialist’s consulting room. Crazy! Do they do it on purpose?
