Mr Hunt, may your actions speak as loudly as your noble NHS tweets


unfortunately the priority of the BMA and Royal Colleges is the survival of the NHS - if that means we are all sacrificed then so be it. The priority of the GMC, CQC, NHSE, DOH, HEE is to support government policy and keep the electorate happy. We do not have any support at all. The BMA and Royal Colleges are not going to declare that the NHS is currently unsafe as they are worried how it will play out politically. In the interim how many doctors are going to be sacrificed to prop up a failing system. And let's be clear it is failing as it can not cope with the demands it has been tasked to do. That means either cut demand or increase resources.
