How can a government get facts and figures so wrong?
Fact: the NHS has functioned all the way through because of good will. Even stuffy consultants give everything they can to the NHS. The patient alwys comes first and many hard-pressed consultants work long hours and come in to the hospital when they are not on call – they are available 24/7.
I’m on call this weekend. At a moment’s notice from Friday morning to Monday at 9 a.m. I can be called in for an emergency operation or even to assess a patient.
