A little too late - and not enough
Patricia Hewitt has finally agreed with every person in the Health Service that the new medical training system is a disaster. If only she had listened back in February when it all started.
All the doctors I have spoken to say just want to treat patients - they dont want to have to do this.
Its only 10 weeks before 22,000 doctors are due to change jobs in every major hospital in the country - a bit late. Doctors have had to cancel operations due in August as they know already there won't be enough staff.
Today the doctors start their legal challenge against the goverment with a Judicial Review. Good luck to them all, we need them back in our hospitals.
