Rumblings


I have seen talk of a suggestion that 'Modernising Medical Careers' (MMC), the name given to the changes in junior doctor training may be running into some legal difficulties. For obvious reasons, I do not intend to comment upon the legal merits one way or the other on a public blog. However, I thought you may all appreciate this photograph taken during the London march on the 17th March, when over 12,000 doctors and supporters took to the streets in protest to the centrally imposed government changes to doctor training and the reduced number of training posts.
Hopefully, things will not progress to the legal court rooms, and I remain hopeful that answers can be found swiftly and amicably. However, if solutions are not found, it may well be that Patricia Hewitt will need her HewBacca outfit afterall; a pun on the Chewbacca defence technique she offered when answering questions in the House of Commons on Monday 19th March

Nice photo, just about says it all.

...And not even sterilised! Those running the MMC really don't know anything about medicine!

Hi Michelle,
The photo is not loading for me, either in Firefox or IE. I see that others can see it.
