Next Time I'm Going To Chelmsford. The Cubicles Have Prettier Curtains... [Feb. 24th, 2017|09:38 am]

Earlier this week we took my mother to Maidstone hospital for a routine eye check-up and the following day she got a call from their robot asking her if she'd recommend them to someone undergoing the same procedure.

I mean, what a silly question. It implies there's a choice. I know the Tories think the NHS should be run like a market, but really....

My mother went to Maidstone because it's the nearest hospital with an anti-veg clinic. I suppose she could have looked around and weighed up the pros and cons and opted for somewhere else a good deal further away but who in their right mind- or without the use of a private helicopter- is going to do that?

The fact that the Tories WANT tor run the NHS this way is endemic of privilege; the vast majority of people I've ever encountered just have to make do with whatever is most expedient.

Exactly. It wouldn't occur to most of us to shop around for a hospital.
