A recent report in the U.K. Telegraph chronicles the conclusions of the British Medical Association’s annual conference, where doctors loudly lamented the undue power of abusive managers and bureaucrats, who seem to have as much or more power in hospitals than the actual doctors.

This is the real problem with government run healthcare. Because it is owned by the public, it becomes a valid political debating point. Any criticism of the system is always painted by the socialists and unions as an attack on the doctors and (especially) the nurses. Yet the main problem is the armies of bureaucrats that always multiply around government organisations and suck up all the vast resources thrown at the NHS The doctors and nurses are great. The main problem they have is that they are overworked, and if we didnt have as many bureaucrats we could afford more of them and that problem would go away.

Remember Matron?
They brought her back ,here(Berks), and the waiting times dropped dramatically.
However the Clipboard warriors still patrol the corridors.
