The real conspiracy of NHS England


Always enjoy the poignancy of many of your previous articles, Nishma. Returning to reality , though , is a different matter. At the end of the day , people working in NHSE are merely doing 'a job' earning a living and I agree that they might want to do their best to improve this undeniably extraordinary and unique circumstance in the history of British general practice. But have they really had any autonomy or must they follow orders from above instead? Like us , perhaps they have very little choices .Oppression is descending from the top of hierarchy at successive level. Lack of determination and leadership to fix domestic issues in this government is evident . But if one wants to give some benefit of doubt to the politicians, the verdict is still :''Never attribute to malevolence what is merely due to incompetence'' (Arthur C. Clarke). From Capita to Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) , resilience funding to premises support etc , the word hypocrisy only kept repeating itself . The caveat of genuinely hurting our patients has become more and more plausible.The careless whisptof 'Public sector workers are overpaid' revealed the true mentality of a government willing to sacrifice people's well being for better economy and GDP rise. Winston Smith worked for Ministry of Truth in 1984 but never really wanted to lose his soul and true identity . He was not allowed to show any negativity towards the establishment and his fate was clearly sealed with a drop of melancholia.
