The real conspiracy of NHS England


Have to agree with Pete Deveson 110%. One thing I would like to add is that I disagree that we should handle our leaders of the future with kid gloves. This doesn't help them sharpen their skills. We have members of the armed forces dodging or catching bullets and making decisions in much tougher circumstances than ourselves at a much younger age than our own trainees, and they stand to loose limbs and lives, all we endure is a bit of a bruised ego. If our leaders can't cope with a bit of criticism / difference of opinion they really are in the wrong job. They should be old enough by now to take the blows, they are not children but already professionals. I suspect the problem with our leaders of the future is that they are cast from the read-repeat-reward system, our system/RCGP does not take kindly to those who challenge it (Observe HSL comments on anonymous contributors). Abraham Lincoln - "our critics are our friends they show us our weaknesses".... our leaders cannot afford to be so delicate that they cannot handle it this way....
