When my OH was in hospital I was incensed by the garbage notices around the place informing us how brilliant they were and how much they cared. The "care" he received was total pants, so these bland bits of window dressing were complete rubbish. Mostly they were in the form of pop-up banners, or large wall posters, and using the initial letters of the ward's name with some virtue attached to each.
I have just driven past the NHS admin offices and there we have their motto, CARE, expressed thus:
C - compassionate
A - accessible
R - responsive
E - empathetic
.........or some such rubbish - I cannot remember the exact details.
What a load of bollocks! What is this all for? How much does it all cost? What is the point? How much does it cost for people to be employed to devise this stuff?
When wards are so short-staffed, and the service is crumbling, could we not ditch all this?
Do I need to like them all? - son's wives
Telling a child 'no' - parenting
She thinks he has a problem - alcohol
