Another reason that the NHS is fooked

Recommended Posts

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6198091/Polish-NHS-midwife-suspended-understand-English.html

A Polish NHS midwife has been suspended without delivering a single baby because she cannot understand English. 

Barbara Fall, 35, was employed as a maternity support worker at Burnley General Teaching Hospital in June 2016.

She was promoted to midwife but failed to pass a transition period because she couldn't communicate with patients and was demoted. 

Mrs Fall resigned and then took her bosses to a tribunal, complaining of constructive dismissal - but her case was panned by a Nursing & Midwifery Council panel which banned her from working as a midwife for 12 months.

If Mrs Fall improves her English to an acceptable level in this time, she will be allowed to work again.

 

at least the tribunal showed a modicum of sense. What a waste of the training budget

Heard Dr Phil Hammond on the radio banging on about the NHs and how wonderful it was.

Apparently the BMA wanted an insurance based system with a safety net for the poor.

Shame they didn't get their way as this would have been a far better system.

What training? Shes sat in room not understanding a single word.

Could have been a car mechanics course for all she knew.

Bma = DRs union.

People dont listen to len mcklusky on running comoanies.

They should not listen to the bma on running a healthcare system.

I thought this thread was going to be about this:  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/india-healthcare-modicare-narendra-modi-launch-ayushman-bharat-pm-jay-insurance-a8550526.html

Quote

India’s prime minister Narendra Modi is launching the world’s biggest experiment in universal healthcare, a scheme that the government says will grant 500 million people the entitlement to free health insurance overnight.

From the moment the programme is rolled out nationwide on Sunday, those living below the poverty line in India will no longer have to pay a single rupee for private hospital treatments that until now would have pushed such families into crippling debt.

They're going to need a lot of doctors / nurses -- not sure if they'll have any going spare in the future...

Nope. They are going to need a lot of readinably literate and some antibiotics snd what not.

Once you get beyond fresh water, sewage, jabs and using antibiotics , the value add of medicine/healthcare drops like a stone
