VERY DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH A COMMON CAUSE
The Witch doctor is passionate about the NHS.
For all its faults.
And there are many……..
My Black Cat and I have been too pre-occupied with MMC/MTAS, polyclinics, Dr Nurses etc to explicitly delve into patient safety. However all of the things we blog about impinge ultimately on this. Way down the line this blog may become more involved on these matters – who knows.
Anyway, there is another blogger who in her own inimitable style, rattles cages regarding patient safety, and some might say she has even sacrificed her career in medicine because of this.
More likely not……
Now Sir Liam, The Witch Doctor is aware that you also have an international presence when it comes to patient safety.
Indeed, for all we know, patient safety may be one of the reasons why you persistently say the UK needs more doctors.
A LOVELY PLACE TO SPEND AN EVENING
Anyway, it struck The Witch Doctor that since Dr Rita Pal is just a stone’s throw away from you in the UK, you don’t need to search the world for support. After all, they say great things are achieved by one enthusiastic man or woman working alone – not by committees.
I don’t think Dr Pal will ever give up on this issue.
My Black Cat tells me that underneath her sassy blogging style is a woman dedicated to this cause.
You may, or may not agree.
You will have heard of her, I know.
Why don’t you take her out to dinner in a posh London Hotel looking over the Thames with the House of Commons lit up in the background.
Then, talk for hours with her.
On patient safety.
On systematic “no fault” errors and blatant neglect within the NHS.
See where it leads.
It may take you to places quite remarkable.
And the benefit to patients may be remarkable too.
And then you can tell the World Health Organisation and the World Alliance for Patient Safety what you achieved.
One night over dinner.
Beside the Thames.
And, Sir Liam, for pity’s sake, don’t forget to take a box of chocolates with you!
This is a woman who would die for the cocoa bean!
We in the witching community are deadly serious over this plan. We hope we will not have to prod you with a spell!
