BritMeds 2007 (9) is up

NHS Blog Doctor: The BritMeds 2007 (9)

For doctors, MMC and MTAS have dominated the week, and this week’s BritMed nominations reflect that. But first, something even more disastrous happened this week to the health service.

Isn’t it nice to be valued by the government? Pay rises below the rate of inflation which are also staggered which effectively means that my standard of living is set to go down.

Hey, let’s bring that socialized healthcare system over here. It seems to be working terrifically well in BritMed land.

Though, to be fair, they have no corner on declining reimbursement in healthcare.


  1. I’m hoping that BritMeds can find a way to get off the NHS problems. As compelling as it may be for them, it’s actually dull reading on this side of the pond after the first 50 or so posts.

  2. Yes, OTOH it’s a constant look into the abyss many on this side of the pond want us to willingly leap into.
