You don’t realise what’s going on.
Well, do you, you gormless Human Kind?
MMC, Remedy UK, North-Staffordshire, Mid-Staffordshire, GMC, The London Deanery, The Highland Deanery, The Department of Health, the legal system and more, are all becoming intertwingled (a witching word) in a strange, complex way.
It will be difficult for any doctor in this land who does not read the medical blogosphere on a daily basis to understand what is going on, and what are the connections and implications. This information is not easily available anywhere else.
It would be well to remember, that the medical bloggers, as far as I can see, are not just letting off steam. They are trying as hard as they can to change a system for the better because nothing else they have tried kicks in until there is a major crisis of some kind.
Blogging is the last resort for The Witch Doctor as it probably is for many other medical bloggers.
But all doctors should avail themselves of what is going on, because legal precedents are now being set although the fog has not yet completely lifted.
But it will.
And the changes may affect every single doctor in this country.
But they do not know it yet.
In the meantime, consider this:
“It is like a totalitarian regime: anybody who criticises it is said to be prima facie mentally ill – what used to happen in Russia.”
I may be mad, you may be mad, we all may be mad. However making a complaint, whistleblowing, blogging, challenging the system, using the language of a swear blog, is unlikely to be a symptom of madness.
It seems nowadays if those in authority hear or read anything that displeases them, the diagnosis of “ill health” immediately springs into the mind.
That is how distinguished people in authority creep into becoming autocrats.
My Black Cat would say it is some kind of conspiracy.
We witches say it is CREEP.
Sorry, all creeping autocrats. You need to take a case history and examine a patient before you can diagnose “illness”
Don’t you remember the very first clinic you attended as a medical student?
Nothing has changed.
Even doctors who have carefully planned their careers in such a way that they have climbed into positions of authority, need to remember the order of things when diagnosisng “illness.” Case history, examination, then investigation.
After considering that, read the following:
Then remind yourself what those in Remedy UK are doing.
While all this is going on, The Witch Doctor will fil in the gaps and record ongoing events relating to:
The Witch Doctor is of the opinion it is worth recording these key events in detail as they continue to unfold because of the precedents that are being set concerning all doctors and all patients as well as society in general. When things go badly there always comes opportunities to change things for the better.
But you’ll have to work out these opportunities for yourselves.
You’ll never find them if you keep your heads down.
We witches can’t do everything, for pities sake!
