PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
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 ?

NURSING the NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE BACK to HEALTH

BAH
REMEMBER DOCTORS BURY THEIR MISTAKES
 
The Radical
6th July 2018
 
The fact of the matter was that the medical profession fought against the formation of the NHS and many still abuse its privileges chosing to practice sessions in the National Health and reserving the right to practice private medicine for most of their time.
 
It was Barbara Castle MP – Labour Health Secretary and the Nurses who campaigned against NHS staff being allowed to have two jobs at the same time.
 
The Consultants rebelled saying they would leave en masse and she caved in.
 
The result is that today the Medical Profession have been featherbedded by the NHS and if there is anything that must change it is that Doctors must be brought into the same contracts as  other Health Professionals.
 
Here in Shildon we still have a situation ,in a Labour Town Council and Labour County Council where privatisation has resulted in Doctors being able to demand terms through a private company in order to meet the needs of the local community who otherwise might not be able to persuade these Doctors to work in the area.
 
Holding the NHS the Health Authority and the People to ransom.
 
Of course under a Socialist Government these Doctors would be thrown out on their ears or given two choices.
 
Consultants given the choice too.
 
 Work for either the NHS or Private Practice but not both. 90% Would choose the NHS where their Bread and Butter comes from. 
 
ONLY the ROYALS, THE RULING ARISTOCRATIC CLASSES AND CAPITALIST RICH CAN AFFORD TO GO PRIVATE
 
We have Registrars a plenty to take over dead men’s shoes and where there are shortfalls in

 
Senior Cover and a feldsher system of travelling doctors and nurses caring for the communities

 
needing health care. 

 
That is until enough of the right doctors can be trained.
 
We have specialist Nurses too

 

In fact we have always had specialist nurses.
 
Covering for shortfalls in the service.
 
I kid you not.
 
Even at St James Hospital LEEDS ,Accident and Emergency Nurses covered for Doctors 
who could hardly speak a word of English and one wondered what qualifications they really
 possessed. 
 
There were dedicated specialist hospitals too.
 
The Birmingham Accident Hospital ( THE ACCY) set up on Socialist principles

 

by William Gissane,Ruscoe Alan Clarke, PS London, Simon Sevitt and many more where young doctors nurses and technicians learned the techniques of Accident (Traumatic) Surgery and pioneered the way for the NHS until it was closed by the Tories

 
Which conveniently turns me to the Hospital Managers.
 
Under the Tories – Reorganisation meant getting rid of the best by bosses who had no
 Hospital experience but plenty of experience of cutting and slashing both people and property.
 
Out went the Geriatric Hospitals, the Mental Hositals, the Trauma Hospitals, the Cottage 
Hospitals, the Pre- Convalescent Hospitals and the dedicated people along with them
 
In came unqualified staff in the name of Healthcare Assistants with inservice training for one 
function only to replace the well qualified Staff nurse and Sister.
 
If you break your leg you want someone in charge who knows what they are doing.
 
24 hours a day cover becomes expensive so ruthless managers cut corners
 
 and mistakes happened- hence the title of this article
 
There are other problems with the National Health you hear little about.
 
THE ADMINISTRATION- 
 
In the past the 60’s the hospitals were run by a Matron 
 
with a Hospital Secretary and Medical Director.
 
Abuse of positions was rife.
 
As soon as Matron retired or was usurped the Hospital Secretary increased his power to take 
over “HOTEL SERVICES” – Catering Laundry Porters etc..etc.. while the MEDICAL DIRECTOR while creaming off the top ,left the day to day running of the hospital to anyone who had wide elbows.
The result of that TODAY is that, even at Centres of Excellence, the place is run by what was

 
MEDICAL RECORDS who also became ADMISSIONS OFFICERS and the result 

today is that they sit and you stand to attention as they laud it over the place.
AT MANY HOSPITALS TODAY YOU MIGHT GET THE IMPRESSION THAT THE STAFF WERE 
DOING YOU THE FAVOUR. 
 
A HEALTH SERVICE no longer but a practice designed to prepare you for we know best and if 
you want our service you must pay for it.
MARK MY WORDS – There are staff DEVOTED TO THE NHS but not in the positions of 
AUTHORITY.
 
THE WORDS SAVE THE NHS HAS A MORE PERTINENT MEANING THAT MOST APPRECIATE.
