…that you are not viewed as a customer?
Paediatric intensive care consultant Dr Peter Wilson said: “It does put clinicians in an impossible position because we now have to try to explain to families why one child is getting a form of treatment, why they can’t and they’ve got the same tumour … And that’s deeply unfair when the NHS is supposed to be about equal health care for all.”
And so long as it’s equally poor treatment, the NHS is A-OK with that!
Sister Mandy Frisby, who cared for him, told BBC South: “The dangers to Ashya would be that the feed going into his stomach could go into his lungs and that could have very serious consequences … He could die …. It just seemed … so unsafe, this child was so vulnerable, and they were so caring and I just couldn’t put the two together.”
Really? What, you couldn’t imagine how they could refuse to sacrifice their child to your ‘equality’?
Another member of the nursing staff, Matron Kate Pye, added: “We were really glad he was safe, but actually, fundamentally, they put him at huge risk. And if you asked me again, ‘Would I phone the police?’ the answer would be yes every time.
“Because if something had happened to that little boy in that car, then we would have been accountable for that.”
Yes. It’s all about you, isn’t it?
Staff at the hospital also revealed there had been an “outpouring of hatred” towards the medical staff following coverage of the case.
Because for the first time ever, it dawned on people that those treating them view outcomes as….mere statistics.
