A laughing stock of NHS?

Have you noticed, that all we seem to hear about from the BBC is about the EU and the serious issue of the doctors’ dispute seems to go almost unnoticed?

Is there a campaign by some national papers to present it in a negative light?

Why hasn’t someone gone undercover by now and presented the reality of the state of the NHS under this government? Is our media really free?

Does it seem to you, that in spite of what may seem to be a determination by Jeremy Hunt to keep a lid on things, worrying facts about our NHS keep emerging and not just in the hospitals, but in the state of the ambulance service as well?

I do know, when a relative of mine, in her 90s, in another health authority, was transported by ambulance in what I considered to be a very unsatisfactory way, it took the hospital a great while to establish which ambulance service was responsible, let alone which individual was with her and supposedly caring for her.

In a recent episode of Boomers, it was suggested that given the state of staffing levels in our NHS, a Girl Guide First Aid badge would soon be sufficient qualification for this job.

Is Jeremy Hunt making a laughing stock of our NHS?
