The Welsh Governement (Assembly) is a parasite. It is sucking the life out of Health and Education

The structures around the funding of the Welsh Government mean that money for Health and Education is top-sliced. Yes, we voted for this (by a small majority) but there are no plans for a second vote, or for re-designing the funding rules.

This means Wales will suffer as a “competitor” with English and other UK regions, to recruit professionals, to teach to the same standards, and to aspire to highest standards in Health and Social Care.

The state of Wales: we should all rage against it’s dying.

Wales government compares GDP with Europe and others..

Welsh Waiting longer

Persistently high death rates in Wales:

Persistently high death rates in Welsh hospitals should be investigated: Listen to Sir Bruce Keogh. Bring back the Welsh Office.

Education, Education, Education – our politicians have failed us all

All education is divisive – We must all aspire to excellence, and speak out.

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
