Normal service will be resumed, but right now I am appreciating the amazing service the NHS provides

Blogging will be somewhat limited today, and maybe tomorrow.

My job today is to provide support to a relative in hospital, and that is taking priority over other concerns.

But it does at the same time make me appreciate, yet again, the amazing service the NHS provides. And it also makes me appreciate, as a consultant said to me this morning, the considerable hurt that NHS reforms are doing to so many strong, capable and deeply caring people who work in the NHS and who are, rightly, profoundly upset by the organised onslaught on their professionalism, competence, efficiency and integrity that this government has unleashed.
