Get a statement from Prof Sir Graeme Catto, if you could, Editor.
I remember that "be open and transparent" about all your mistakes publication from 10 years ago and thought it was a veyr bad idea then
Hilarious. Trump is once again the one in the crowd who is essentially tweeting that the great communist emperor has no clothes on
As for the lunatic statement of the labour party lefty idiot. Every doctor's salary represents by definition "the flow of taxpayer's money out of the NHS to the private sector" ...
Errr...this seems like a pile of rubbish. Does he moonlight for NICE
Hey, "Misreported", trial by jury of doctors in situations like this is dubious to say the least...read up on the Jayant Patel case in Queensland. He was dubbed DrDeath by the local media BEFORE his trial. Juries are TOO easily swayed by emotions. It was totally obvious the manslaughter charges to Patel could not be substantiated and it was a witchhunt with racist undertones and their were huge systemic failings left unaddressed AND he was set free on appeal.
The mitigating circumstances in Bada-Garba case are enormous- undeniably so.
Where the hell was her consultant, by the way??
The Bawa-Garba effect...every
The tragedy of the cardigan writ large. How did Shipman (" on reflection may be I shouldn't have murdered my patients") lead to all this forced reflection hogwash?
A question I always wanted to ask...who actually pays for an appeal such as this?
Legal aid? Or does Dr Bawa-Garba have to pay
"It did get to a stage where I couldn’t guarantee that my patients within my department were safe"
Safe from what? A heart attack, a fractured femur et al are inherently UNSAFE situations?
And what is YOUR definition of safe? Can you write on a piece of A4 paper a definiton which will applyto every case in a busy AE department/

Dude, you are playing with fire
Congrats for making it onto Pulse. Send your mum a cutting.
Everything for free lasted about 3 years when charges for prescriptions were forced on a population in 1951...a population that was hoarding reselling and generally abusing the free commodity.
Charges for other stuff should have come in every few years in the last 70...but didn't
Borat has an excellent point. GPS can't just rewrite their history...
I sat in meetings with self- congratulating partners 1997- 2003 who PRIDED themselves that UKGP was largely apart, separate, outside, independent of, not beholden to the great communist experiment that was / is the NHS
Since when have the same GPs started styling themsrlves as the only hope for the NHS
Whenever I went to college gatherings, they would always start with some children's party exhortation to "put your hand in your neighbour's shoulder" or "stand on a chair"
Touchy feely BS is in GP DNA
It's why everyone laughs at / craps on us
I can't stop the novel leaking out of Dr Manek, but was there anythimy medically wrong with this patient?
Pills pamphlets procedures...are you suggesting that GPs should also prescribe cash to needy people?
Let's see if the soiled bibs of the toothless demented has the same media attraction for the media narcissists like Jamie Oliver, eh!
Keep your population as close to "tiny" as possible....sounds like a fantastic template for planning a prosperous economy
Only wish that the mutton-head lefty "internstionslists" of the Blsir/Brown years had realised this.
What precisely does "stuff the economy mean?" Every economic decision has winners and losers. If you don't know this you are ignorant or being wilfully stupid. You do realise that Norway and Switzerland have never touched the EU with a barge pole and have pretty un-stuffed economies.
I think this article is (unbelievably) still just sour grapes about the referendum
By the way can anyone aged over 50 like me cite a single year in the last 32 ie since I was an adult when there wasn't a queue of people like the author willing to shout that the NHS is "stuffed"
Hi Peter. I too think antipsychotics are not a force for good...could you please kindly supply a reference for the "die 15 years younger" quotation for my collection. Thanks
Last month or so, Des, it was anti-depressant. I mean, I totally agree with you. Pharma has a magical formula, create a demand, most GPs are just open script pads and people just love taking pills.
In the long run we're all dead, as JK Galbraith said.
The next two articles about antihypertensives and amoxil write themselves...
...then the term "depression" has lost its meaning.
Or should we put all of them on ADs. Pharma would just love that
