Reality quotes… To deal with reality you must first recognise it as such.

Some of these quotes are for doctors, some for politicians and some for the voting citizen who is a member of their health service mutual. The second quote is from Laurence Gonzalez book on the sea and global warming effects:  “Deep Survival: who wins, who dies and why”.  It[‘s secondary title seems most appropriate for the Health Services in the UK. There’s a lot of discussion behind the backs of the media and the public… If politicians could change their mind they would change everything and could save and restore a worthy NHS. Since the profession don’t seem to be able to influence any debate, the best medicine for us is cynical laughter..(sic)

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.
