There are still a few true angels left in the NHS system but they are few and far between. They are completely outnumbered by poor managers and too many administrators.
Patients do not get the simple humanity based treatment that they should and face a lack of respect and even a level of mistreatment that 3rd world countries do not exhibit.
NHS Mr Cameron, a National Disgrace not a National Treasure.

Hope you continue to improve and don't have to be subject to NHS again too soon.
Still choosing to discount the obvious and selectively ignore postings that state facts about the NHS?
What part of REDUCING UNAVOIDABLE DEATHS don't you understand? You can't blame me for the headline title the NHS chose the damn thing! Are you holding me responsible for the reasons behind the report and it's content as well?
As for working in the NHS, let me make myself clear to save you repeating yourself, on this fact at least,,I don't work in the NHS, got it?
last time I went out the door or read the Daily Mail, is still a democracy. btw I also read the Guardian, Telegraph and if my youngest lets me have her copy, the Times, not as often as The Daily Mail, but then I can manage the Daily Mail crossword!
Improved Infection Control, well it could not have got much worse I suppose, so I will agree with you that it has improved, but unless I am mistaken, people are still uhhh, um, err., di, no, expiring, under NHS "care" as a result of infections caught in hospital.
So, othersideofthecoin, how do you address the postings of other people on this thread that obviously report experiences of the NHS somewhat different to the picture you insist and maintain is your version of it?
Nursing in Context (nice title that) Ch6 p108 has a wee quote halfway down that goes like this...
"The NMC code of practice states that as a nurse or midwife, you: 'must act without delay if you believe that you! a colleague or anyone else may be putting someone at risk'.
Must be an overwhelming need for compulsory eyesight testing at the front line then?
Raising any concerns related to poor-quality care.
I look forward to your next debunking attempt and diatribe with feigned interest.
Evidently the Nursing and Midwifery Council (the clues in the name!) is considering imposing regular checks upon nurses to prove that they still care about their patients.
