The NHS taking the p***.

There has been a very popular charity called Help for Heroes in the United Kingdom which you can read about here. We will not dwell on it too much save to say that it seems to fill in the gaps for those servicemen and women who are injured between what the Forces' and NHS medical and social care provide.

On our travels we frequently see people raising cash for them in all sorts of ways. Sometimes even if you walk into a colleague's surgery staff there will be collecting usually because someone they know or know off is serving or has served in the armed forces. It was only founded in 2007 and seems to have caught the public imagination.

Well the Party has followed this trend and come up with its own idea in he last few days and we would not suggest that they have no imagination and are copying a successful idea but have a look here and at the official website here.

Who would you nominate to receive a "recognition certificate"? Will Mr. Lansley be signing them personally and touring the troops to award them to the "heroes" in the glare of national press coverage? Perhaps it will go a stage further and a Lansley Star or Nicholson Cross be issued as well that staff could pin to they uniforms for state visits?

Of course the question is who would you nominate? Given the recent announcements about the reductions inchildren's cardiac surgery our minds here at ND Central were drawn back to the person who blew the whistle at Bristol and suffered great personal loss as result of going above and beyond the call of duty, Surely someone who should receive such a recognition certificate?

Unfortunately he cannot, as you have to work for, not have worked for, the NHS. So if you have nothing else to do if you know someone who has a cup of tea, a hand to hold, a shoulder to lean on who always goes the extra mile visit this website.

On the other hand it if you know someone who can't hold a cup of tea because they have no hand, who has no shoulder and who would love to walk the extra mile but cannot you may like to consider another website we have mentioned and do something useful instead.

Praise be to the Party for its complete lack of imagination and for taking the urinal by doing so.
