So, this is the man who refuses to go to arbitration but then at the 11th hour agrees to talks via ACAS. Then blames BMA for not engaging earlier. I'm not a doctor or a member of the BMA but I am thoroughly sick of the disingenuous morons that Cameron appoints as Secretary of State for Health. Lansley's reforms cost us billions for no benefit and he's been elevated to the Lords. God only knows what Dave is planning for Hunt.....beatification?
Call me cynical (I've been called worse) but how come the overworked anonymous moaners find the time to read the article, compose and send their response in what most of us would consider to be work time?
Clearly Dr Singer is aware of the price of everything and the value of nothing. No mechanisms to refund the patient? I would feel obliged to put my hand in my pocket and reimburse her in the same situation. What is this Chingford Practice called "Computer says no!
So, Gee says £5.7 billion going astray. Funnily enough he was the grand fromage of NHS counter fraud. Clearly wasn't much cop at his job if things are that bad. His figures are based on the time honoured consultancy formula; think of a number, double it and add £4 billion. I think "Gee" may be short for "Gee whizz, where did they find him??"
There was that bloke Lansley, he blew £2 billion on an ego trip. It worked well.
It's always interesting to hear the bellicose threats from the armchair warriors at the DH etc. Any chance one of these wingless wonders will criticise the Lansley &Hunt reforms? Of course not, too busy being measured up for the suit for when the inevitable OBEs and other gongs are being distributed
Can we all please stop the mud-slinging and old rivalries etc etc. Direct your ire towards Messrs Hunt and Osborne; that's where the real probs. arise. Also can we move away from anonymous posts - they're like nasty graffiti in the school toilet block. Ok your go....
Well really!! Are some of you suggesting that a Tory Health Minister might tell porkies?? That would be as likely as ...say ... a bloke called Lansley saying that there will be no more top-down reorganisations of the NHS
'ang on a mo. Shouldn't you be directing your ire against Hunt rather than pharmacists? He makes policy not us!
