Re: When managers rule

Prof Jarman has brought together evidence that shows conclusively the way the NHS has been eviscerated. As far as the non-medical managers who carried out their masters' wishes are concerned, I blame them not. Their job is amoral. But, they could not have done all this without the acquiescence or connivance of doctors.
In the absence of a system of private confession and absolution in medicine, perhaps the guilty ones could anonymously send to the BMJ, a single word of remorse. For, they have sinned.
A happier new year. To all.
