"More Failure At The Horror Hospital"

"I Cannot Exclude A Failure Of Care"

  1. No proof I know but a family member is involved with the Hospital and told me they know of no one that works there, that would recommend it for treatment.

    It was also stated it is the only hospital in the channel islands that can commit corporate murder on a nurse who went in for a minor operation and died and not one person was held responsible.

  2. Am I the only one getting fed up with the constant excuses for bad practice from our hospital? We keep hearing stories about how the staff are under too much pressure and having to work weekends on call which seems to lower standards of care. It's time Pryke stopped meddling in decent folks lives, wanting access to their homes etc and started sorting her department out. Also if Andrew Mitchell would stop his ridiculous agenda of telling us all what we should or shouldn't do, he could spend less time getting his face in the media every other day, and perhaps he could do a bit of work to take the pressure of all the other overworked doctors!!!

  3. Here is an idea, if the Health Minister is so keen to get to the truth about the time consultants actually spend doing their daytime pubic jobs, have a chat with the Treasury minister who is on the same team. Then ask him to authorise a breakdown, without names of course, of all the gang of full time consultants at the hospital regarding their tax bills. No names just their total taxable earnings.

    They should be earning a very decent £90 to £130 thousand annually being slightly above the NHS rates plus a some little extra for private work.

    Won't Ann be surprised when one of the full time Consultants in his full time job at the General earned almost £1 million. So tell us again Prykee how much private work do they actually do and if you want proof go see the tax man.

    Sack him and the rest who abuse the system then employ consultants on new contracts that have to work a full 40hr week for the benefit of the public who fund the hospital. The waiting lists will plummet.

    Would you like the names of the consultants abusing the informal system your old management organised ? Allowing the consultants to run their own private businesses from the Hospital, then go ask the right states department, they know for sure, we dare you ? or like the chief minster are you completely spineless.

    States Book keeper.

  4. Tell us more, States Book Keeper (within the law, of course). That's 20 grand a week that he is coining in!

    Ian - you should do a full blog post on the above revelation, it shouldn't be left just buried in a comment.

    1. Anon, it is impossible to do a blog posting on this topic as I only know the unsubstantiated claims that are written above. What else could I possibly write? If the author of the comment wishes to get in touch then matters could progress.

  5. I take your point. And everyone is entitled to confidentiality in their tax affairs. It's an interesting and eye opening revelation though. I could well understand a consultant earning two or three hundred grand a year if private work is included, but...a million quid!!! It's staggering.

    1. Agreed, it has huge potential as a factual story, but there must be facts. Until those facts arrive there is nothing I can do unfortunately.
