whilst all the doom and gloom merchants continue to talk down the NHS day in day out they perform life saving operations and remove toe nails. The scale of their task is immense and people expect it to be ready to serve them when they decide to use it.
The focus by media and Politicians on Stats and performance is bollox and not helpful to the work the NHS does and the constant increase in demand for ever more treatments.
The "focus" on the NHS highlights the deplorable state of the institution thanks to the ongoing sabotage by this government who are committed to privatizing as much as they can get away with.
The continual cuts in the NHS dictate that the professionals who soldier on to provide free treatment are placed under ever increasing pressure, the majority of consultants as an example have private practices but also do NHS work as well and many criticise the Tory wrecking of the service.
Nurses too are under a tremendous work load with cuts reducing their numbers to unacceptable levels yet they too strive to give the best service possible.
Politicians and the media would be roundly condemned if they sought to blame anyone but the government for the deplorable state of the NHS.
As a footnote after some shitty luck in the last two years and several spells in hospital I fell and broke my hip and had a replacement procedure in the Royal, the hospital is behind schedule to close and move to a new location, also behind schedule following the Tory appointed builder going bankrupt. I digress, the Royal itself is a shadow of it's former self and the reception area more like St John's Market than a hospital and that smell of strong cleanliness is noticeable by it's absence.
The moral of the story is I developed sepsis as a result of bad hygiene and it f**king near killed me.
Only blame is down to those same cuts by this government, only a Tory would seek to lay the blame elsewhere.
