It's not rocket science why people are waiting up to 12hrs in A&E. What are people to do when they cannot visit a doctor? Doctors need to get back on track.

I was once told by a very good GP (who has sadly now passed on) that he would never make a diagnosis of a patient over a telephone call and some people cannot express their symptoms to their GPs properly .

Ringing 111 is a joke here again, are people making a diagnosis over the phone.

I myself waited seven hours for an ambulance.

All the A&E centres that have been closed down such as Burnley need to be opened up again .

I am not blaming our wonderful NHS staff - what would we do without them?

What pressure they must be working under!

The system cannot cope patients are being shunted all over the place for treatment from this hospital to that hospital and from this health centre to that health centre. Sometimes at times not even in their own towns.

Some people struggle to get there and spend a fortune on taxis. Trying to access to patient transport is a nightmare. One has to be ready two hours before pickup time and the round trip can take the biggest part of a day. Don't forget some of these people are elderly disabled and maybe in pain or feeling ill it is just not acceptable. Then we have Blackburn and Darwen building more and more houses. It beggars belief ! Where is it all going to end? Is there anyone out there who knows how to run this Country? I think my pet cat could do better.
