Health Committee Report HC92 – A question of integrity

The Health Select Committee’s Report lacks integrity. Of course, that’s not to say it doesn’t say some useful things. It identifies many serious errors made by the current Government, while laying the blame for many thousands of deaths at Boris Johnson’s doorstep. However, it lacks transparency, suppresses data, and refuses to account honestly for the UK’s failed pandemic preparedness. …

The Art of War (against the NHS)

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is used by corporate strategists to this day, and explains a great deal about what’s happened to UK healthcare over the last 40 years. Here we examine the possibility that COVID-19 has finally provided Sun Tzu’s “extraordinary moment”, and what that means for the NHS. COVID-19 presents an “extraordinary moment” in NHS …

The Pandemic Protocol – where is it?

The Prime Minister has said, “We’re confident that all the vaccines we’re using provide a high degree of immunity and protection against all variants”.

It’s time to learn

“We truly did everything we could,” said the Prime Minister as he announced 100,000 British deaths. That was a deeply worrying statement, because it suggested no insight, no admission of error, no change of strategy for the future.  His state of denial was challenged the following day with a direct question about the fact that the UK had …

In 2017, NHS England submitted one of the most significant documents in its history to the Chief Medical Officer – the NHS Surge and Population Triage briefing paper.
