More crumbling standards

“Hospitals infested with vermin” was the headline that greeted me when I got up this morning.

“The cleanliness of most NHS hospitals in England is threatened by frequent invasions of rats, fleas, bedbugs, flies and cockroaches, a report claims.”

You can read the full report here.

More evidence that this part of the First World is deteriorating fast – at least as far as the public health system is concerned. Private health care is available to the few who can afford it.

  1. Hello Peter:

    “Ivan Lewis, the health minister, said the Conservatives had exaggerated the problem, and “talked down” the NHS in order to score a political point.”

    Every time a problem is detected and exposed by the media, politicians always say it’s a political attack by the opposition. They never assume responsibility.

    As you know, the same thing happens in Panama with our public hospitals. Politicians act the same way everywhere.

    Hi, Omar. Perhaps it is only our perception that has changed but politicians today seem to be mediocre wherever you look.

    I have a soft spot for the NHS because if my childhood illness had occurred only a few decades earlier I would have probably remained a cripple for the rest of my life.
