Butterflies and bloggers

If you have read this blog over the past week or so, you will be aware that The Oldest Sage Witch has been in philosophical mode contemplating the “The Butterfly Effect.”

There is a doctor whose career suddenly and dramatically changed course as a consequence of a moment in time. The fluttering of these wings still reverberates years later and will probably continue to do so for some time to come.

In the opinion of the witching community, the butterfly effect has resulted in this doctor becoming one of the most informed, meticulous, outspoken, passionate and compassionate of medical bloggers around.

She walks a tightrope that few can walk. But I think she has trained herself to balance and she knows exactly what she is doing.

I hope so.

Although she often writes posts with great humour and panache, in the depths of this blog is a hoard of reference material relating to injustices and injuries within the NHS and universities.

You might at times find her forthrightness uncomfortable, but this blog needs to be read by everyone in today’s medical establishment. Only then can you judge.

Today she addresses, among other things, the recent suspension of a Scottish doctor because of something he said.

If you spend some time exploring this blog, there is information also regarding another doctor who used the wrong “tone” in a communication. Explore this blog for yourself and discover the consequences of that.

And then ask yourself some questions.

And having asked the questions, from wherever you sit within the medical establishment, seek answers.
