After the inquest her father Richard Allnutt, 61, a site manager, accused the NHS of only working a five day week and said the family was considering legal action.Not so surprising. I remember when my father was in hospital, and a 'temporary' drip, only meant to be used for a couple of days, was left in too long & his arm swelled up like a balloon.
Not that any of the nurses noticed or took any action, until we complained.
As Al Jahom notes, the NHS is failing badly, but I'm not so sure about this:
"I’m sure those at the coalface are (generally) doing their best, but what a crock of shit the wider organisation is."You see, you cannot blame everything on policy, or bad senior leadership team management. At some point, you have to look at the people on the spot.
If they are failing, it's quite often because they are the wrong people, and not because they are good people who are badly managed.
