Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Dr’s -Who The Hell Do They Think

Dr’s -Who The Hell Do They Think

They Are Talking To ?


The article “Failing Doctors Could Be Forced To Say Sorry” is an insult to society.


Any Doctor who makes a mistake, accidentally or unintentionally should be prepared to say “sorry” at the very least – otherwise they are a coward- to themselves and a disgrace to an honourable profession.


So let me say right now that I have worked with and for some splendid Doctors, dedicated to their professsion and the National Health Service.


And let me also say that I have put myself in the hands of some Doctors who have perfected great technical skills of diagnosis and operation and come out the better for the experience


But I, like you, HAVE TO put myself in Doctors hands,


Just as Doctors rely on farmers to produce their food and their rubbish to be removed by refuse workers


Doctors bury their mistakes, so saying sorry to those patients  who dont make it is difficult, but more difficult if the deceased paid extra on top of their NHS contributions.


I always prefer to be treated by Doctors who do not undertake private work and but  do  only NHS sessions.


Part timers can only be loyal for part of the time, and should not be given more responsibility whereas those working and practicing full time for the  NHS are its complete backbone.


There are doctors who understand that the politics of national health care is a way of life for them and those who use it, fought and fight for it and keep it and the doctors in it  going.


Doctors must also take litigation as part of the price they pay to practice. None of us is perfect all the time and no one is God


But too much damage is being perpetrated in the name of “care”


Doctors must be monitored and the results made public just as all senior NHS staff should be accountable through election.


Give those elected and doctors appointed by them the trust and responsibility to work for the National Health and in most cases they rise to the occasion


Inevitably some let the system down and some cannot even say “sorry” but they get found out in the end. It is a pity that some get to positions of appointed elevation but most do find obscurity and a loss of face.
