Getting blood from stones

January 15, 2017 10:27 AM

Councillor Inga Lockington :- "I note the latest solution to the emergency pressure on hospitals is to brow-beat our GP's into working longer hours with little evidence that this can be achieved, using staff that don't exist. Many surgeries have unfillable vacancies because increasingly people do not want to work to Theresa May's rules in Theresa May's NHS

My husband is a busy Hospital Consultant working in acute hospital care for people with frailty and complex problems, especially people with Parkinson's Disease. He loves his work. He could have retired last year.

In common with many doctors, and especially GPs, the Care, Respect and Partnership, which patients should expect from Doctors, is totally absent from their political masters who seem to believe that sticks and demands rather than carrots and care are the way to improve our struggling Health Services.

The result is likely to be early retirement for many and a deepening crisis for us all." Cllr Inga Lockington
