The cavalry isn't coming
Surely human beings are programmed to be as ‘birds of a feather’ flocking together?
When people are angry or stressed differences become a hook to hang your anger etc on. Skin colour is an obvious difference but accent, sex, class, religion etc etc all are used. Hard to go against hard wiring.
I agree with previous posters. We are all human and have more in common than not. Education, challenge and living and working together is what will reduce racism and not further groupings or separation. Everyone needs to stop being so angry and take personal responsibility for being a good human being.
I would collect together these examples and forward them to your MP and the newspapers rather than posting here. More powerful.
I also agree that the less activity the less cost to government who, currently, must have echoing coffers. Thus, it is in their interest to delay ‘non urgent’ stuff as long as they can. Infact this might well be a fast track to their ultimate goal of privatisation??
@ Cobblers- been saying for years that there is a communist type propaganda narrative from NHSE for sometime.
I agree truthfinder
Just goes to show how essential the whole revalidation thing is.
I don’t know why we intelligent people continue to presume that the government a) tells the truth
b) is rational
c) listens and acts on expert advice in and of itself
d) is able to articulate its decisions to the population in a way which others can understand clearly.
I also think that there should be a default position of no resuscitation for this in nursing homes and anyone with diagnosed dementia.
I think that there is a big gap that needs to be filled by public health education.
The brilliant book by Atul Gwande on death and dying should be compulsory to all medical students but also good to read and discuss in schools.
I think that’s the way to go with NHSE. Just ignore them and block their emails.
I could t agree more with Curious.
Stop in fighting. Start asking for what you are all worth.
Another pay freeze is on its way for a long long time
What is the point of spending so much time and money on training to be a professional expert when you are then ignored.
The NHS is really going down the pan.
Why can’t we all have some sort of universal card which has GMC and medical indemnity on it, photo ID and info on mandatory training like a medical passport?
All so stupid that you can work in one place but not another until you have gone through a load of repetitive, pointless hoops
NHSE seems very good at telling everyone else what to do.
Need to remember that if someone in authority says the same thing over and over again it becomes a fact. People start to believe it. This is what is happening and Matt is the guy who will keep saying it.
Obione brilliant idea
Absolutely appalling abuse of power.
Say no and publicise the fall out.
Do not roll over otherwise they will never stop pushing you.
Remember you are clever, independent, professionals not cannon fodder. Don’t act like it.
As soon as I read that Capita had been given responsibility to organising this I stopped reading.
Is this whole thing going to drive doctors away from the health service at an increasing rate or make more stay?
Dorothy Williams you have done your best. Not your problem. If you want, send this info to newspaper orMP rather than pulse. Will be more powerful.
Pippa Wilson. Because you cost real money
