    The Privatization of NHS Operations?

    Hi All,

    I haven't time to write a hopefully useful contribution to this at this time but I have just listen to the Health Minister defending herself on B.B.C. Radio 4 News, etc. regarding what amounts to the privatization of the operations on patients on the NHS.??? Only free NHS at the point of first treatment is being defended as a no no!!!

    Denied of course but are we surprised?

    With respect of a Junior Doctors Conference findings and Conference outcomes re. jeopardizing Patients' safety above, (Even if it makes me deeply unpopular here with a marked few, I agree with the JUNIOR DOCTORS' TOTALLY!!! Anyone who voted Labour in the last general election are about to get all they deserve and I strongly suspect even more than they deserve with regards to the NHS. and a few other things we did not even think about at the time of that little black 'X'! Free rein the English have given them with a safe majority!!!!



    P.S. We used to have produce the body as are first right as a subject UNDER the CROWN in this country??? But not any more I didn't expect that to be taken literally in some cases though!!!.

    Captain of the Ship?

    Hi All,

    Part of Quote by Mike Hayward, "......... . Ultimately, modern day health care is about teams."

    Does this term "TEAMS" mean when defined,

    1. The Consultant Surgeon as 'The Captain of the Ship'.

    2. Surgeons, doctors, the First and Second Deck Officers of the Bridge.

    3. The Nurses and other Health Professionals doing that which they have always done under the above Supervisory Ranks on the Bridge, (But still directly in their presence of course?).


    1. The team acting as independent health professionals unsupervised by the Bridge Offices' and left to get on with it to SAVE MONEY!!!

    2. Committee Meetings and the decisions that come out of them, not directly from THE CAPTAIN?

    3. A dispute with the CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP whilst the SHIP heads for the ROCKS looming ahead! The Committee meeting is in progress to decide what NICE or the like have decided somewhere else than where it's all at, (STILL WITH THE CAPTAIN!). The Surgeon is hovering over the PATIENT of course with Scalpel in hand at the time as he awaiting the Team decision?


    Colin. (A marked change to the present OPERATIONAL NORM I think!).

    P.S. All this of course because the Surgeons and Doctors declared a monopoly, Labour does not like monopoly's who stand up to them!
