HEALTH CARE: Weed out bad apples

Have your say

How sad I feel it is, that in the 21st century here in Great Britain, there are senior NHS chiefs who seem to believe that it is acceptable to give government targets priority over the wellbeing of the elderly, sick and vulnerable. They, along with our politician friends, seem to have perfected the art of spin (some would say blatant lying) and practice it without any sense of shame.

As a member of a family who has suffered the avoidable loss of a loved one, through bad medical care (I hasten to add not in this county) I can only say that they seem to have a perverse sense of priorities.

In any other walk of life, to operate in this cavalier manner, thereby causing loss of life, would quite rightly expose them to the full wrath of the law of the land.

How is it that they can operate in this manner, showing total disregard for our laws, and appear to have the full backing of our elected MPs? Indeed, a number of these chiefs were chosen by past and present leaders of our government.

Over the past three years, I have experienced a total lack of co-operation and respect from a number of MPs and various government departments in trying to get some kind of justice in the case of my late mother, who sadly passed away on Mothering Sunday, 2009.

My sole purpose for carrying on this personal crusade is in the hope that this cruel state of affairs will change, and these fall guys will be held to account.

I have many friends who are employed by the NHS, and I am convinced that it is imperative to show our support for the vast majority of conscientious staff, by expelling the negligent few.

County councils will soon be taking on much more responsibility with regards to the running of hospitals .With this in mind, I have come to the conclusion that never has there been a more important time to ensure we elect truly independent county councillors into local government.

I would suggest that to vote for a Lincolnshire Independent candidate would be a very wise move.
