there are I think, 1.4 million people work in the NHS. 

 

That's a misleading figure.   The NHS is not some great monolith with everyone pulling in the same direction.  It's much more a collection of relatively unconnected small to medium sized organisations operating under some loose central branding.


That's me.  I'm done.

There was no waiting list then or in 2009/2010/2011 or 2012 but  in 2013, since the "reforms" suddenly there's a waiting list for a test to ensure I'm not going blind!

 

The purpose of the reform is to encourage you to go private.  If you could get the treatment you needed when you needed it on the NHS, how would anyone make any money?

Even without union money, Labour bring in more than the Tories.

So, the nurses need sacking then.

Were there any complaints at Mid Staffs, or were they bumped off before they had the chance?

Perhaps the nurses really were "too busy". Obviously nobody should have to wait three hours but if there was life threatening stuff going on elsewhere then you can understand why the nurses didn't get involved. Dreadful but a system failure rather than the fault of any individual.

 

The NHS often employs two people to do the work of three and then people come out with "sack the nurses" because they can't cover the missing person. What do you expect?

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Perhaps yours isn't a severe case and has been given low priority over more urgent cases ?

Regarding appointments, at my GP's the Doctors can make you a hospital appointment while you are there in the examination room as they have access to the hospital booking system and can tell you exactly when there are appointments available and secure the appointment for you there and then on their computer.

 

Or perhaps they've lost my notes like they had the last time I went!

From this week's Popbitch:

 

"Colleague left work on Newman St

almost got knocked down by one Ed Miliband,

who was cycling along the pavement...

the wrong way down a one-way street"

 

Pretty much sums up Labour these days.

Criticising this current government ought to be like shooting fish in a barrel for any half decent politician.  I can't see much in the way of competence or credibility on either of the front benches at the moment.

Ed Miliband should use "grownups" in his reshuffle.

I think he needs a big conference.

 

Needs to start leading the agenda not following.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Miliband can never escape this catastrophe, and the Tory Party propaganda machine will keep it well to the forefront ofits  public and media campaigns.

Just saw on telly that in the latest MORI opinion poll that Ed Miliband is less popular as Labour leader than Gordon Brown at his lowest.

Things must be serious within the Labour Party. It's been nearly a week on this thread and Steve May still hasn't rushed to Miliband's defence.

 

And, as usual, Caroline Flint is proving a wholly supportive member of the leadership group. Damning him with faint praise.

Caroline, love, it will end in tears ... no matter how pretty you look, the party will always remember the way you walked out on Gordon Brown when things got sticky. I don't think you will ever get offered a major big-three job.

Still there's always the chance that you can land a gig as one of the regulars on Loose Women.

 

 

A sympathetic person might almost feel sorry for Miliband.

 Fortunately, I can't stand him and what he stands for, so I don't.

Unfortunately, I've been busy, making the most of the NHS while we still have it.

 

I'm back now, and it appears that Ed M is currently in charge of the country.
