This page is for those public or elected professional figures who have been invited to participate. Dominic Lawson in The Times today 3rd March 2013 does not feel it likely that Politicians (will tell the) Truth, but I feel there is always a hope that we might light up their altruism, and they might just comment on how to turn around the NHS, even if it will take more than two terms in office.. I do not expect many nurses and doctors who are working to either be interviewed, or if they are to give their names. The cultural changes to remove fear of retribution will take a long time to change. Meanwhile our heroes should be those who speak out, either on the site or in the national media. (It seems Local media cannot give space and time to the philosophy & complexity of issues.) If you are retired please consider your duty to the NHS to speak out. Warning: If you were hoping for a “gong” your name as a communicant on this site will probably end all prospects.
