NHS Suffolk has been receiving a lot of criticism over its article being posted on its official website. The article titled "Do you seriously think you're dying?" is based on the usage of accident and emergency unit at the medical facility.
The article clearly stated that one should not use the unit unless he is dying. After coming across the article, the Patients Association has raised concerns. They were of the view that the language of the article was too blunt.
The NHS Suffolk has also admitted the same and this is the reason that they have edited the article. However, they stuck to their point and said that emergency services should only be used in serious health conditions.
GP Dr. John Havard was of the view, "A&E stands for accident and emergency, which means you, should only be there if you've had a serious accident or you have a medical emergency".
He continued by saying that one has to understand a simple point that if one is having tooth ache or stomach ache, then he should not be at the A&E unit. He can get treatment at some other facility as well, but people who are at the verge of death cannot get treatment at some other place.
