It’s still hot, it’s also started raining, and we are still a crap hospital according to various measurements which have virtually nothing to do with the quality of the medical care you will receive.
There was an good comment this morning from the Chief Exec of one trust which narrowly missed 3-star status. He said they would just stop providing the services which caused them to miss the guidelines this year. The sad truth these days is that as a patient, you are nothing more than a government statistic. The government don’t seem care what level of treatment you receive, or whether we actually cure you, as long as we “deal” with you within a fixed timescale.
