NHS: What More Evidence Do You Need..?

…that you are not viewed as a customer?

Paediatric intensive care consultant Dr Peter Wilson said: “It does put clinicians in an impossible position because we now have to try to explain to families why one child is getting a form of treatment, why they can’t and they’ve got the same tumour … And that’s deeply unfair when the NHS is supposed to be about equal health care for all.”

And so long as it’s equally poor treatment, the NHS is A-OK with that!

Sister Mandy Frisby, who cared for him, told BBC South: “The dangers to Ashya would be that the feed going into his stomach could go into his lungs and that could have very serious consequences … He could die …. It just seemed … so unsafe, this child was so vulnerable, and they were so caring and I just couldn’t put the two together.”

Really? What, you couldn’t imagine how they could refuse to sacrifice their child to your ‘equality’?

Another member of the nursing staff, Matron Kate Pye, added: “We were really glad he was safe, but actually, fundamentally, they put him at huge risk. And if you asked me again, ‘Would I phone the police?’ the answer would be yes every time.

“Because if something had happened to that little boy in that car, then we would have been accountable for that.

Yes. It’s all about you, isn’t it?

Staff at the hospital also revealed there had been an “outpouring of hatred” towards the medical staff following coverage of the case.

Because for the first time ever, it dawned on people that those treating them view outcomes as….mere statistics.

    Socialist equality comes first, equality of ignorance, equality of poverty , equality of subservience and equality of sheer misery !

    Until they have repercussions for their actions then they don’t need to consider their actions before doing them.

    Of course nobody, bar the public, has been hurt yet but it surprises me that after decades of these cock ups nobody has snapped yet.

    Walk into any Hospital and you will see the union billboards exhorting staff and patients to do this, that and the other and meetings galore, the precepts are in order.

    i. Never put the patient first – because: “you’re worth it”.
    ii. I must have my down time, after all the union tells it: this is only a job.
    iii. the union says: My pay and career are more important than ‘life’ itself.
    iv. the unions says, ignore patients, they’re only numbers.
    v. the union says, if you can never make eye contact and remain by work station even when they ‘cry’ out in pain.
    vi. diversity and equality, global warming and no RELIGION except Isalm allowed.
    vii. and a 40 hr week, incremental rises, with six weeks fully paid annual leave is vital AND as much sick leave as you like!

    The unions working for you against the patients, backed by the Labour party and paid for by YOU – the mugs out there.

    Arrested? For seeking (and getting) better treatment? What a weird looking glass world the NHS has become.

    The NHS, like pretty well all of our public sector, is a perfect example of Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy:-

    Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people”:

     First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisors in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.

    Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.

    The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.
