All About Sir_Quej
What is the problem with the NHS these days? Why are our hospitals in such a bad state? My wife's step father is currently in intensive care and is doubtful to make it through the night. He went in 4 weeks ago with a kidney infection and was slightly dehydrated. He has been moved about from ward to ward, from doctor to doctor, from nurses team to nurses team. None of them have been able to identify what the problem is. I wish I could say it wasn't through lack of trying....but I cant. He has been treated appallingly while in hospital. He has been pushed and poked, poked and pushed, prodded and pricked, pricked and prodded and then some. At one point, he was assigned to two doctors who were arguing about the best treatment for him. They actually argued in front of him on one instance. Professional??? I think not.
So here I am...asking the question, what is wrong with our hospitals. What is it that is killing our NHS? Is it underfunding by too many governments more interested in building pointless useless glistening domes. Is it too much immigration introducing too many people into the NHS who have never contributed to it's building? Is it criminally negligent administration by the powers that be within the organisation? Is it a combination of two or all of the above?
I don't know what the answer is or I would be currently typing this from my bedroom at 10 downing street. The only thing that is clear to me is that the NHS and our hospitals are teetering on the edge of a very large abyss. It is not going to take much to push the whole system tumbling into the black hole from which it will never return. I don't have the answers. Does anyone have them? Are we already too late? How many more innocent people does the NHS need to fail before someone who means something stands up and says "Hang on, I know what to do". The easy thing to say is STOP all immigration, STOP the poor administration and STOP underfunding the NHS. Ahhh, if only the world were so easy. Only pre-election politicians will seriously try to kid on that it is.
Maybe, just maybe, the problem is that the things mentioned above, the Funding, the Administration, the other policies that affect the NHS are entrusted to people who are in a position to not need the NHS. People who's lifestyles and personal funding means they get to use the private health schemes. The people who when damaged, visit the private hospitals and see the very doctors who, having gained their qualifications using taxpayers hard earned money, then turn their backs on the NHS and flit off to better pastures, leaving everyone else with the ones who either are not good enough for private hospitals or who are just learning the trade so that they can the repeat what their predecessor has done and abandon a system in need.

Sir_Quej does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Sir_Quej a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
