A guy walks into a Doctor’s surgery and says; ” I want to see my Doctor now “.
The receptionist says “sorry Doctor can’t see you, you’ll have to ring at 8.30 in the morning”.
The guy pulls out a knife and slashes open his wrist “WILL HE SEE ME NOW!”

No, it’s not a joke, it’s not satire. It’s Rhymney, May 2015.

The young man that did it is the son of a friend with several mental health issues compounded by alcohol and Class A drug abuse. The poor ladies in the reception hit the panic button and emergency services and first responders attended the scene.

Not heard much else, just hope the lad is getting treatment, his father has had enough stress and bad fortune in his life to last an eternity.

It’s scandalous what has happened to mental health provision in this region. God help us all if the opencast is approved. There are many scientific, anthropological and social services studies that show a massive increase in mental illness in regions where there is opencast mining.

Rhymney, Twyn Carno ward is already one of the most economically deprived regions in Europe. and is regularly in the bottom five of most deprived wards in Wales. The future is truly frightening.
