Who would be a chairman of a peripheral Health Trust (Wales) (Such as Pembrokeshire with 120,000 people) or PCT controlled Hospital (England) in the current crisis? As the truth about what we can afford and the need for rationing is consistently denied by politicians, the Chairmen have their hands tied.. The rules of the game they play are such that they can never win. I wonder if any of them will ever agree to an interview on NHSreality?
NHSreality has predicted more and more resignations around the country as the players are unable to meet both the financial imperative (first call) and the quality initiatives (second call). I have no doubt that Chris Martin will not have an exit interview, and that if he did the contents of it would not be made public.. When its to do with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) the resignations are due to lack of influence (Commissioning GP 21st Jan 2014):
The resignations of people with alternative work (General Practitioners) speaks volumes. They would also like to change the rules, and they speak out against the current ones by resigning. Have any of them had exit interviews? Is the National Media asking them for comments and then opening the philosophical debate? Of course not. The collusion of denial continues..
Seriously, we should be thanking Chris for staying so long (? 15 years) in an impossible job.
