I am writing this from Scotland, where my mother and stepfather live. I brought forward a planned trip because my stepfather, Murray, was in hospital - again. He developed pneumonia earlier this year and has been in and out of hospital ever since. At his initial admission he was discharged in florid cardiac failure and it took some time for the local GP to work out what was going on because GPs no longer look after their own patients after hours, so he was never able to respond to the nocturnal attacks of PND. As a result poor Murray eventually landed up in hospital again - and was again discharged without the correct medication for cardiac failure.
