Andrew Lansley, the Health Secretary, is to write to the British Medical Assocation urging doctors not to put patients at risk when they embark on their first industrial action since 1975.” (Donnelly, 2012)

Andrew Lansley the Health Secretary is attempting a spot of scaremongering through this anti-doctor propaganda article. In my opinion this is more to do with belittling those who stand against the way in which the Government is attempting to change the way through the provision of healthcare.

We are about to have two days planned holiday in celebration of the Queens diamond jubilee, note “two days”. Quoting  ‘s figures this should set the Health Service back at least £80million.

Two-days where there is reduced healthcare provision across all services; emergency, urgent healthcare provision will not be affected. In effect just like the 52 weekends we have in the year.

So Mr Lansley, how is one day of action going to make an impact, “on waiting times, which could be breached if operations and diagnostic tests are cancelled.”

The current financial situation in which we find ourselves is having a greater impact upon “waiting times”.

I am not a doctor.

As a tax payer I do not consider their planned day of action worthy of such a biased article.
