And incidentally, , if you want to debate the facts pertaining to Brexit and the NHS, please invite me onto your show to do so, rather than making ad hominem attacks on my profession.

This BBC piece is stunning. Huge enduring systems failures at a hospital and one young black doctor gets the blame. Also I think I missed the GMC detail: the medical regulator upped her sentence because of a social media campaign? No way to foster safety.

The GMC is in the dock. Surely time to recognise doctors are working in an increasingly stressful environment, and to set safe staffing levels to protect both patients and NHS staff

BMA: We want to support an open and just culture where we can admit our mistakes. Me: Great, I want to talk honestly about ’s successes and failures during the 2016 strike and its aftermath. BMA: Erm, we are not sure we meant quite like that.

“For too long, the NHS has been driven by a blame culture, where the first response – not just of managers, but also of clinicians – is to ask whose fault was it that something happened?” Yup.

Delighted to have been elected deputy chair of Council working closely with . These are hugely challenging times for doctors in an underfunded, neglected & marketised NHS. Doctors are struggling to cope and we have to do all we can to support them in their work

The NHS being dismantled does not = ‘failure’. It’s like saying an Aston Martin is rubbish to drive when someone has nicked the wheels and propped it up on bricks.

A lot of the current problems in the NHS are related to the marketisation & privatisation of services (from cleaning to clinical services) This adds to cost whilst fragmenting services at a time of restricted funding. ‘Reform’ for the IEA means more of the same. It’s no solution.
