Having just posted at length on the joys of a failed enteral feeding pump and the poor quality of equipment and service provided via NHS contractor - the pump we used to 'fill the gap' when the first pump failed, has now failed itself. If I hadn't made myself unpopular by insisting on an urgent replacement, he would now have no working feed system.
We now have - one emergency delivered working pump (I hope - untested here), and two failed pumps (one they didn't collect yesterday and one that failed just now.)
Tomorrow is going to be another cross day - their emergency number takes quarter of a an hour to answer and can't even pass a message to the company responsible - I have to do that myself when the office opens in the morning. I will.
