NHSreality has awarded the following three levels of New Year’s Honours. Don’t be afraid to apply for a gong….. But remember you wont get a royal award if you speak out.. In an age when whistleblowing is renamed non-disclosure, and is covered in CEO and Chairman’s contracts, I do not expect many volunteers from those in post, but I believe we have a duty to aspire and speak out…
The three NHSreality RHS (Regional Health Service) awards are:
1. The Nye Bevan RHS award for honesty. This is given to those who have agreed to Exit Audio Interviews on their working lives, usually starting in the NHS, and then in the different health services. Nye Bevan had a clear view of what he wanted to achieve. NHSreality respects his intention, but also feels that technology and society have moved on so that we can no longer afford “Everything for Everyone, for Ever“.
2. The Emperor Nero RHS award for “fiddling while Rome burns”. This is given to those who agree(d) to an interview, but have not delivered, or who are considering whether to do so. In Pembrokeshire this includes representatives of the Community Health Council.
I don’t intend to publish names …. guilt may change their minds..
3. The Charles De Gaulle RHS award. This is awarded to important people who say “Non” to requests for interviews on the health service to be posted on NHSreality. In 2014 It is awarded to Stephen Crabbe MP and The Welsh Labour Party who have not responded to several requests for interviews on NHSreality.
