Mr Hunt

So my feelings on this man are no secret. He’s just short of the hatred I have for IDS.

Jeremy Hunt gives NHS consultants ultimatum on weekend working

He accused doctor of being overpaid and lazy

Quote from above artical I’m not sure if he was confusing consultants with MPs…

asleep
The picture above shows unelected members of the House of Lords, hard at work debating the effects of George Osborne’s ’emergency’ budget on families and the

Now lets take a brief look at the ultimatum.

My basic understanding

Mr Hunt want consultants to work weekends. To make weekend “care” safer

This is a fantastic effort but like all or Mr Hunts plans is full of holes and will make things worse.
Mr Hunt should really know a hospital is more than the consultants whos going to fetch the patient? what happens at 3am if access to x-rays fails? who assists the consultants?

If consultant X has been working all weekend. He’s really in need of sleep. But has a full “list” of routine patients to see? Dose he cancel or work?
If he works there is a chance he could miss something. If he cancels Mrs Smith whos been waiting weeks for an appointment is left high a dry.

Mr Hunts not know for his wonderful leadership skills, in fact his role has more in common with a court jester then a “leader” of the crown jewel of the British welfare system.

Conflict of interest fears as Hunt appoints NHS adviser with big private healthcare interests

UPDATE

So Mr Hunts is constantly wiping the egg off his face as the Twitter hashtag #ImInWorkJeremy is making him seen as the fool he is.

@cpeedell: Hunt’s lies about NHS consultants’ working practices are being brilliantly exposed by the trending #ImInWorkJeremy hashtag

@AllyMintoft: Already worked 60 hours this week and now #ImInWorkJeremy with my consultant. #longlivethenhs @Jeremy_Hunt http://t.co/WAiAUZ0Qb4

#ImInWorkJeremy

UPDATE

Im guessing right now Mr Hunt is wishing for thr ground to open up! Mr Cameron is no doute planning another u turn while trying to defend Mr Hunt david-cameron-mp-resignation-or-removal-of-jeremy-hunt-mp-as-secretary-of-state-for-health. He needs a cell next to IDS!

The power of social media! This letter from a junior doctor is a total knock out.
janis.burns the letter

As someone save by the hard work of all the NHS employes. I can only from the bottom of my heart thank you. This .gov my have abandoned you the people never will.

UPDATE

So you would like to feel our MPs lead by example, set a high standard. The reality however is they are jumped up, hypocritical bunch of tits.

Jeremy Hunt fails to make any weekend visits to hospitals over 12 months 
Now I’m 99% sure if I miss 3 appointments I’m discharged and need to be referred again by my GP!

NHS to reveal cost of missed appointments to patients

“If we’re going to square the circle and have a fantastic NHS, despite all those pressures, then we have to take personal responsibility for the way that we use NHS resources,” he said.

UPDATE

Jeremy Hunt says Labour has abandoned NHS patients by supporting the junior doctors’ strike

So first we had The BMA, Then the Junior Doctors and now Labour… It’s as if the man in charge of the NHS has no clue what he’s

UPDATE

Hunt: Trusts to start publishing avoidable mortality rates this month

NHS hospitals in England will start to publish estimates of their annual avoidable death rates later this month, Jeremy Hunt has told a major patient safety summit.

Another fantastic idea from Mr NoBrains. The idea a ‘death’ could be seen as avoidable is abused. Not to begin on the legal can of worms that this will open.
The big question…Who defines avoidable

UPDATE

The Ninja News Video
We see Eamonn Holmes for Sky News interview Mr Hunt. Who proves he’s incapable of telling the truth.

Mr Hunt used the 2015 manifestoas a political reason behind the “7 day” NHS

Also as health minister I’m slightly worried he says…

You can’t chose what day of the week your ill

As far as I understand it emergency care is 24x7x365 A&E units are open each and every day.
And until the Tories started “fixing” things where full equipped to handle any emergency.

He also believes 75 meeting in 3 years, is an acceptable effort.

Im not going to pull apart the manifesto because it will increase my rage levels key claims conservatives manifesto launch

Telegraph’s Junior Doctor Isn’t
The telegraph managed to find One Junior Dr who supported Mr Hunts contract, one small problem, he’s not a junior Dr.

spending

When it comes down two an MP defending his party I’m always going to be a bit of a skeptic.
When a news corporation is openly lying it reflect badly on all journalists. Who offer an unbiased view of a story. I thought the BBC could be held up as an example of good, unbiased reporting. Was I wrong.

Harry Smith, 91, brings tears to Labour delegates’ eyes

The Conservative and Lib Dem coalition government has increased NHS spending each year during the current Parliament and both parties committed in 2010 to the founding values of the NHS that no-one, regardless of income, should be deprived of the best care.

I can’t stand bad journalism, they have a responsibility to report the facts

Ministers rebuked on NHS spending claim

monitoring-review-3-2013—real-terms-health-expenditure-in-england.pdf

The Rt. Hon Andy Burnham MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, wrote to Andrew Dilnot on 1 November 2012 expressing concern that statements made by the Prime Minister and Health Minister to Parliament were inconsistent with the underlying statistics about spending published by HM Treasury, a Department of Health (DH) press release and a House of Commons Library note. He considered there had not been an increase in health spending in real terms, as reported by the Prime Minister and the Health Minister. He also referred to a commitment in the Coalition Agreement to increase health spending in real terms, which he considered had not been met. He asked Andrew Dilnot to help in bringing clarity to the situation and for a recommendation on how to ensure that in future the debate on NHS spending could be accurate and reflect the facts.
In his letter to Andrew Dilnot, Mr Burnham quoted statements which he believed were inconsistent with the statistics published in Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2012, produced by HM Treasury:

  • The following section of the Coalition Agreement:
  • ‘We will guarantee that health spending increases in real terms in each year of the Parliament’

  • The following statement by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons on :
  • ‘The fact is, however, that at the last election only one party said that it would increase the NHS in real terms, and that is exactly what we are doing’

  • He also quoted a later statement by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons on :
  • ‘It is certainly not because the money in the NHS is being cut, because it is not being cut. The money in the NHS is being increased.’

  • The following statement made by the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, in the House of Commons on :
  • ‘Real-terms spending on the NHS has increased across the country’

  • He also quoted comments made by Mr Hunt on BBC Daily Politics on :
  • ‘In real terms NHS spending is going up…. it is incredibly significant that in real terms this government has made a big, big choice to protect the NHS budget’.

  • and further quoted the Conservative Party website
  • ‘We have increased the NHS budget in real terms in each of the last two years’

You HAVE cut spending on NHS: official stats watchdog embarrasses Cameron

In a deeply embarrassing and damaging intervention ahead of George Osborne’s Autumn Statement tomorrow Andrew Dilnot, chair of the UK Statistics Authority, concluded that spending on the NHS is actually lower in real terms now than it was in 2010.

I’m just one man and have no where near the resources of the BBC. So my conclusion is they are openly trying to deceive us.

UPDATE

@Jeremy_Hunt: Spending actually went up £2.7bn in real terms last year alone. So Labour are promising significantly less than we have actually delivered.

David Cameron ordered to stop saying NHS spending is up

That to me sounds like a false statement.

Ministers

I can’t claim to be a fan of politics or at times understand their some what questionable polices. How ever since saving my life in December 2010 the NHS has been very close to my heart.

Unfortunately I’ve had reason lately to contact my MP, Bob Neil http://www.bobneillmp.co.uk/ and. The Minister for Disabled People Mr Mike Panning http://www.mikepenning.com/

I can honestly say if Mr Panning was given his P45 tomorrow, I might throw a party.

ministerial code Why has no one stopped them.
The “forward” of the above document says…

In everything we do – the policies we develop and how we implement them, the speeches we give, the meetings we hold – we must remember that we are not masters but servants. Though the British people have been disappointed in their politicians, they still expect the highest standards of conduct. We must not let them down

yet…

b. Ministers have a duty to Parliament to account, and be held to account, for the policies, decisions and actions of their departments and agencies;

So Mr Hunt is responsible for HIS decision to privatise the NHS and Mr Cameron lied during his bid to get elected.

c. It is of paramount importance that Ministers give accurate and truthful information to Parliament,correcting any inadvertent error at the earliest opportunity. Ministers who knowingly mislead
Parliament will be expected to offer their resignation to the Prime Minister;

Some could argue that his actions towards the NHS given his election pledge constitutes misleading parliament.

f. Ministers must ensure that no conflict arises, or appears to arise, between their public duties and their private interests;

I also tried to contact Mike Penning the minister for disabled people. I email him
Now given I started my email with…

Firstly let me apologise for contacting you like this but I’m feeling very isolated and somewhat ignored.

You would expect a helpful, sympathetic response Janice Speaight responded with…

Many thanks for your email which has been passed to the Department for Work & Pensions for response.

I’ve tried to get help from DWP, but it’s like trying to get blood out a stone.

UPDATE

On I got a response to my letter to the Minister for Disabled People.

Thank you for your further correspondence of 29 July to the Minister for Disabled People regarding Access to Work. Government Ministers receive a large volume of correspondence and they are unable to reply personally on every occasion. We have been asked to respond and apologise for the delay.

On I submitted a Freedom Of Information (FOI) Request.

How many hours do Minister have to work a week?
How much communication (letter/email/etc) do Minister get. (this can be an average over a month.)
From Constituents & From Non-Constituents

I got a written responses few weeks later.

How many hours do Minister have to work a week?

A. ministers don’t have set hours.

How much communication (letter/email/etc) do Minister get. (this can be an average over a month.)

A. They don’t have a break down – howevers it’s 50,000 a year.

Let’s break that down. 12 months a year, Min 28 days a month, Most people work 5 days a week.

50000 / 12 = 4166.66666667 (Round up 4167)
4167  / 28 = 148.821428571 (Round up 149)
149   / 5  = 29.8 (Round up 30) 

So it’s on average 30 letters a days. I’m clearly in the wrong job.
