“Your life in their hands” takes on a new meaning

Four things to remember when you have surgery:

1. Don’t die

2. Don’t get an infection

3. Get up out your bed and walk – fast (and don’t fall over.)

4. Don’t get yourself readmitted to hospital if you have post op complications.

As a good patient, do all of these things, and your surgeon will give you good feedback because he/she will be laughing all the way to the bank.

So, surgeons will get bonuses for doing what they should be doing anyway?

The GP’s have been insulted.

It is now the turn of the surgeons.

Wonder what multinational companies will be producing helpful little “tools” for this Novel Activity of Imaginary Usefulness.

Wonder where their head offices will be.

Wonder how much they will charge for their services.


Lord Darzi.

This government is using you.

You are a surgeon.

You are not a psychologist.

Nor an economist.

Nor a politician.

You are entering NEVER NEVER LAND
