Fat smoking nurses
"Suddenly the patient is dissolved of all personal responsibility "
Well, you could argue that this is the outcome of just about every mental 'disease' label too
And Dr Bhatti what is stopping YOU from standing for elections. Please explain that
What he/she said above
"BAME " is bollox
Mind you, I'm a bit cafe au lait in the summer, and I'm happy to take the credit on behalf of my melanocytes for steering clear of anything to do with the racgp all my life
At Terry Sullivan
Eh, soft lad, behave
Lancet, Daily Mail, fag-paper
BAME - this is a dumb term and I have no idea why it has currency. 'Black' is this a chromatographic scale. 'Minority ethnic' - surely every ethnicity is a minority compared to the universal set.
Intelligent people, stop using it
Keep Governments way the F out of people's lives and ambitions. Well done all.
Before covid, I used to point to Parkrun as a wholly positive and wholly nongovernmenta movement started by a few people with a good idea.
Public sector teachers have always regarded the business of teaching children as a massive imposition on their otherwise holiday filled sinecures.

As you say, Yorkshire. A supreme irritant.
I put a lot of credence in the obesity link from emerging USA data
There is a need not to confuse SCIENCE with playing around with numbers in an ivory tower, which is what EBM is/has become. Anyone here like to offer a defence of what NICE does for a living?
Antivaxxers use "available evidence" of vaccines "doing harm" all the time to bolster their views.
Only very immature doctors think that science - still less NICE numbers - holds all the answers to clinical problems
Evidence based medicine is, to the first approximation, academic wooly cardigan crap. When you are fending off the grim reaper anything is worth a try. I'll cite iv steroid in crashing sepicemia. The uk nhs NICE has done just about everything wrong in the last two months with respect to COVID-19
What is the point of MBE, OBE, KBE, if you don't believe in Britain's German monarchy or believe in triggers to remember the British Empire. May be we should ask the new leftie poster white boy, Sir Keir
Thought I'd better read the article properly, like
"Citizen’s assembly should be commissioned to review the services provided by the NHS. Ordinary members of the public ought to be part of this decision-making. "
Money for nothing and jokes for free. That paragraph gave me the best laugh of the day. Cheers
I just went to the FULL White House transcript. Dr Angus' "having a laugh" cheap shot is a textbook traduction of what was actually said, like how we warn schoolkids about in following bad journalism
Here is the relevant quote. Trump was being totally reasonable throughout, since he was moderating, off the cuff, a detailed scientific report about 1. The lethal effect of UV light and 2. The lethal effect of disinfecrants on the virus, and at every step, the press corps were trying to put words and 'fake news' in his mouth
Q: But I — just, can I ask about — the President mentioned the idea of cleaners, like bleach and isopropyl alcohol you mentioned. There’s no scenario that that could be injected into a person, is there? I mean —
ACTING UNDER SECRETARY BRYAN: No, I’m here to talk about the findings that we had in the study. We won’t do that within that lab and our lab. So —
THE PRESIDENT: It wouldn’t be through injection. We’re talking about through almost a cleaning, sterilization of an area. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t work. But it certainly has a big effect if it’s on a stationary object.
Q Mr. Bryant, are we simplifying it too much by saying that it’d be better with the warmer weather and the sun coming out more and more, that people would be outside than staying inside their home, confined to the four walls of their house?
Money spent on the NHS is not the problem it is the waste and inefficiency on the part of the bureaucrasy suppliers and the all you can eat buffet on the part of the punter-demanders
By the way, for all the people taking cheap shots at Trump, Corbyn was calling the UK the best healthcare system in the world so 'have a giraffe' about that. And secondly, public hospitals in Boston, Mass. are giving routine courses of hydroxychl/azithro, as per what Trump said 6 weeks ago
And as for Dr Katie's point, Boris needed qualified doctor, he didn't necessarily need the NHS. There's a big difference
Thanks Stelvio, needed saying in spades
Richard Horton keeps going on that "humans should show humility" With respect to who/what? The invertebrate phyllum? Intergalactic aliens?
Also, Horton 's own Twit-tweets in January showed as much optimism/naivete about the threat of covid as the Governments
I was even beginning to cut a bit of slack to Lancet after the magnificence of its Andrew Wakefield scandal Politicians do not have a monopoly of history-rewriting narcissicism at all
