OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

That might be the nicest thing anyone's ever said on here about Josem.

Amusing that Wrighty defends the managers meeting and yet the thread is about the incompetence of the managers meeting.  If all essential operational directors met face to face for photo it would be a busy time in the workplaces.  
Are you up for a role in Manx Care Wrighty, old chap?

Has Wrighty (sic) posted about this. Perhaps you’re confusing me with an unrelated ortho.

There is no explanation or apology from me about the role of the DHSC and the hospital over what I perceive as failures and my posts have consistently reflected that I hope.

Mistakes have been made in my view. And continue to be so.

Getting the hospital back up and running must now be a priority. A respectable and experienced clinical and management needs to take over and that is what my hope is (Pandora's box). We need the right teams in there, and the wrong ones out.

The Govt has to take into account the current problems and support fully the reimplementation of matters urgent and stop trying to make political capital out of it any more.

Irrespective of lockdown urgent clinical procedures need to be taking place for whatever conditions are being presented. For resources and how they are being used, or not used, public complaints, the press and social media  along with the MHK's need to be asking the questions and getting honest answers. 

Hope is fine, and I respect your stance, of course.  I am cynical, and think that as soon as Teri Cope does something that causes any social media ripples - remember little Finley's medicine -  the arm's length principle will be ripped up and the DHSC will tell her what to do (even if that is never made public).

It probably won't even have to be social media - just failing to provide the right service for one of the right people may be enough.  The arm's-length principle may only have ever been intended to apply to the plebs and their representatives.

Though in an election year the latter may suddenly discover the old saying about be careful about what you wish for ...

Everyone is worthy of the protection of the stare irregardless of their clinical condition. Not to start off with that premise risks a lot of pain and unpleasantness. 

I'm all for protecting the stare, but it's difficult to maintain behind some spectacles.

(Just trying to get a message in on the page number that coincides with the year.)  😎

On the endoscopy thing I did have one last year, took about three weeks from referral to appointment so no complaints there.

I still haven’t had the appointment to discuss the results.  It is booked for June which will be 10 months after the procedure.

How on earth is that justifiable if they aren’t doing many actual procedures?  I haven’t even been given the option of a phone or video call. 

The fact they you have not even had a video call in those 10 months is appalling. You need to get a an email off to Ashford and copy your MHK pronto.

whilst i fully agree with you on this point ( who'd have thought )   the hospital waiting lists were a shit show long before covid turned up to add to the excuses,  IMHO  they deliberately make you wait so that you put your hand in your pocket to go private.

You are right about the pre-Covid Waiting lists. With regard the private bit, whilst that might seem to be the case in some specialties, there are others with equally unacceptable waits where few, if any, of the Consultants see private patients/do private operations, so clearly there is more to it than just that.

I'm less cynical now as things are slowly unfolding. @Boo Gay'ns post the other day leads to the Manx Care website and already there are some interesting developments being formulated. For example -the public attending Board Meetings is something I have been pushing for years.

The commitment to a developing complaints process with the comments the Minister made last week is going to be very welcome and hopefully start to provide better answers for this who feel they have been let down.

Without some of these and more changes out of the political control / dabbling we may, in time, have a health and social care services fit more for purpose.

re Finley -that was Beecroft's decision iirc and not necessarily the wrong one. Was that where she and Crouch disagreed, can't remember. I heard they had problems actually being in the same building at the same time.

What does Boo Gay'n mean please?
