Young doctors harm patients and support the NHS with their cruel beatings

“First, no harm.” The sacred words of the Hippocratic Oath, sworn by newly qualified medical professionals.

The well-being of every patient, whether young or old, came first. Until last week.

Striking doctors and nurses are harming patients and our NHS


Striking doctors and nurses are harming patients and our NHS

Now, in an act of unprecedented cruelty, tens of thousands of young doctors have broken their promise and pulled the plug on medical care to the death.

Patients have probably already died because they dropped out in search of a 35 percent pay rise.

Countless others – including you and I – are at risk from “rolling strikes” between now and Christmas.

And in an amazing twist of the knife, RCN nurses have just rejected their union’s recommended five percent pay agreement and voted to join the strike.

They had demanded 19 percent.

For the first time ever, both the British Medical Association and the Royal College of Nursing will abandon the sick, distressed and dying.

Few would deny our hard-working frontline NHS workers a decent pay rise.

In fact, many could say they are worth more than the current offerings.

Yet Unison’s far from docile leadership has accepted the exact same five percent offer. It will fall to them and some RCN scabs to hold the line.

Even Labor Health spokesman Wes Streeting – himself a cancer survivor – insists both the wage demands and the strikes are unsustainable.

“There are simply no circumstances where I will say that I see fit to remove emergency care coverage,” he said. “

That would be wrong.”

Speaking on Sky’s Sophy Ridge programme, he slammed Health Secretary Steve Barclay for writing “like an agony aunt” in yesterday’s The Sun on Sunday.

But he also urged nurses not to let their patients down.

“The RCN has enjoyed widespread public support in previous labor disputes because it has done everything it can to protect emergency care and cancer care,” he said.

“I appeal to them to continue to protect patient care as I am really concerned about patient safety given this week’s junior doctor strikes.”

“I am really worried”

Streeting stands out from Keir Starmer’s seedy shadow cabinet cast as the voice of reason.

But he also stressed the electoral risk for Labor from any association with militant extremism.

Labor insiders are aware of their shrinking lead over the Tories.

Starmer’s grotesque attempt to portray Rishi Sunak as “the paedophile’s sidekick” has backfired.

With local elections looming, the last thing Labor wants is to be caught in the act alongside striking emergency services, skyrocketing NHS waiting lists and a muffled drumbeat of preventable deaths.

Voters are already fed up with striking rail workers, most of whom earn far more than they do.

They have lost all sympathy for hardline teachers who have left children dry during Covid and are now incredibly sabotaging their students’ life chances with the threat of a strike timed to hit the GCSEs.

Families struggling to get food on the table can see that most public sector workers are doing reasonably well.

The economy is creaking

The blobs’ average wages are a whopping 11 percent higher than private-sector earnings, plus they have longer paid vacations, unlimited sick leave, and a low risk of termination.

Few could be classified as “fat cat” bureaucrats.

But many qualify as “hidden unemployed”.

Best of all, they can look forward to inflation-proof final salary pensions, which are all but extinct outside of local and national governments.

Perks like these are out of the question for families counting pennies while inflation pushes bread and butter into the luxury goods class.

Yes, we want doctors and nurses to earn more.

But we also know that the economy is creaking after Covid and the war in Ukraine.

The left-wing BMA absurdly claims that young doctors have fewer than one Pret A Manger barista, but millions of hard-working Britons – including Sun readers – live in the real world.

They could see the £180billion NHS, with its striking doctors and placard-waving nurses, in a different light if, as Wes Streeting fears, they cannot get life-saving cancer treatment before Christmas.

Or when they walk into the hospital with a stroke or heart attack, only to find the emergency room doors slammed in their face.

alarm raised

In the hunt for the “woke” pound, companies called HOUSEHOLD are tripping over one another, hiring thousands of diversity and inclusion advocates to keep us all in the loop.

That could change following the controversial use of a transsexual “influencer” to promote Nike sports bras and Bud Light beer.

American buyers are offered alert texts with “Wake Alert” text alerts about goods with a leftist agenda, such as: B. Wake-Washed jeans and Woka-Cola.

We could use similar warnings in the UK.

Nothing wakes CEOs up like a kick in their bottom line.
