Administrative interference is destroying NHS

I have been so frustrated by this Government's policies and so-called improvements, and the feeling that there is longer the time to actually practise medicine.

But after reading Dr Copperfield's column I already feel better that at least someone is in same boat. Maybe I won't resign now!

Everything we do is being interfered with. I just counted the administration staff on our PCT and local agencies and would you believe there are 153 in total - excluding the various GP leads, nurse leads and so on.

Why do we have to put up with this? Shouldn't we form a resistance group and make the public aware of what a waste of money these changes are.

Money could be spent on new doctors, nurses and hospital beds. Having worked for more than 30 years in the NHS and spent my life caring for patients, I feel very sad that this Government is destroying it. Let's do something about it in order to save the best health service in the world.
