"I'm an NHS doctor – and I've had enough of people clapping for me"


The health service is not a charity and it is not staffed by heroes. It has been run into the ground by successive governments.

I work for the NHS as a doctor.
- I don’t work “on the frontline” because there isn’t one.
- I’m not in the army and we aren’t engaged in military combat.

But I do work as a consultant on a ward where we have had Covid-19, and colleagues of mine have been very unwell. The requirement to be constantly vigilant and to manage the infection risk makes work more difficult, more stressful, and at times more tragic.

It would, however, be nice to:
  • Have clarity about many things, from testing to isolation to proper use of personal protective equipment ( #PPE ).
  • Work in an adequately funded NHS, staffed by people listened to by the government.
  • To see appropriate remuneration for the low-paid staff holding the service together.
  • To see that the value of immigrants to the NHS is appreciated.
  • To have a health service integrated with a functioning social care service.

Wasn't Brexit supposed to reduce bureaucracy? This sounds more like an explosion in bureaucracy. It also only covers the state side of it, not the business side.

And wasn't Brexit supposed to save money? Well, let's say the 50,000 extra staff fully costed (ie including overhead, pension contributions, employer social security contributions etc) cost £30,000 per year. Which I think is optimistic, it's more likely to be more. Still, even at only £30k/year per head that's £1,500,000,000 per year. That's over 4 Brexit battle buses per year (Remember the £350M/week claim on the bus...). 4 buses we're not going to spend on the NHS, but on bureaucracy. Oh, and don't forget, this is only for the state side, not the costs business will have to bear. Which I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same again, or more. So that's 8 buses in additional bureaucracy costs every year. Or two months of the annual EU contributions (as overstated by the Leave campaign, as in reality after the rebate and the amounts the UK got back it was far less. Meaning it's probably more like half of the net annual EU contributions by the UK).

Always remember, this is what people wanted. They knew what they were voting for. They fully understood all the implications of what they were voting for. And they love the idea to give up sovereignty about their personal health data to a foreign power.
