Patricia Hewitt's Review

The BMJ (24/03/2007) tries to offer some insight into the current review which the Government is undertaking about doctor training:
"..applicants for their third or fourth year or specialty training (ST3 and ST4) would be guaranteed an interview for their first or second choice of training post... Doctors applying for their first year of specialty training (ST1) who have not been shortlisted for any interview will have their application reviewed...Meanwhile, applicants for second year specialty training (ST2) who have not been short listed for interview will be offered a face to face review..."

The following clip perhaps illustrates Patricia Hewitt's chewbacca defense technique:

I enjoyed that... you are right old Patsy is trying to blind everyone with more mess to cover her previous mess... she should stop trying to defend herself and say 3 words:
"GUILTY AS CHARGED".

I don't understand what chewbacca has to do with the NHS, dammit, it just doesn't make sense!

Hi David, well I guess that's the point, 'the system just don't make sense'! It's all smoke and mirrors. Michelle

David Anthony said...

yep, just teasing Michelle, sorry. I think maybe Chewbacca could do a better job.

I always wanted a pet wookie. But remember, a wookie is for life not just for Christmas.

It looks a complete shambles to me.

Michelle is my favouritest shrink
I log on to see what she thinks
She's sweet and she's kind
Do you think she would mind
If I asked her out for a drink?

I hadn't seen that South Park for a while. Thanks for the good laugh.

If Chewbacca lives on Endor then we must fire 12,000 British doctors. Ladies and gentlemen, this does not make sense!

Patsy Lost-it, she does just not make sense..... MMC, MTAS, the changes and the reforms, just do not make sense. Perhaps, most of all, it does not make sense that we don't have enough doctors and she is trying to get rid of them.... it just does not make sense.

Thanks to all who have left comments, including i love limmericks and midwife with a knife. The latest post today shows HewBacca in full defence wear! All my readers are so kind and I thank them all for their input. Michelle

I love the look of HewBacca with a bubble out of her mouth "I just don't make sense"
