Well??!!! Eh?

This letter has found it’s way into the media.

You’ve probably read it by now.

BARTS AND THE LONDON HOSPITAL SURGEONS QUIT OVER “DANGEROUS” SITUATION

BARTS HOSPITAL CONSULTANT’S RESISGNATION EMAIL – FULL TEXT

HIGH PROFILE RESIGNATION AT A LONDON HOSPITAL PROMPTS SAFETY INQUIRY

There are lots of interesting bits. Here is one of them!

“He concluded: “I have been complicit in a poor standard of trauma care and am guilty of negligence by association.

“I can no longer stand idly by when patients are at best having their human rights breached, and at worst physically harmed by the care they receive.”

OK, how many consultants and GP’s know deep within themselves that they have been complicit and therefore guilty of negligence, simply because they “went along with the flow,” kept there heads below the parapet, and for some reason, not known to man or beast couldn’t find the courage or common sense within themselves to just say “NO!” when crazy tick-boxing, protocols, de-skilling, charts and inane record-keeping took over from the professionalism that was once associated with patient care.

Resignation is not the answer. It puts the expertise gained over many years into the private sector or the golf course or both, and leaves the NHS bare of experienced professionals and so patients become more vulnerable.

Why could they not have said “NO”

Altogether.

All over the country

And meant it!

Stupid, stupid, doctors of The Humankind!

Why can’t they all say “NO” now, even as the witching hour chimes?
