NHS, Hot beverages and slacking off
I read a lot of crap, I do. I use the excuse that I need to be up to date with what is going on in the world to read the crap, but I read a lot of useless, and sometimes quite strange stuff.
I have realised that my hatred of people increases, the more I read the news.
and then today, I read this.
This is an article in The Independent about hospital staff in Leicester being banned from drinking tea and coffee in public places because it makes people think that they are "slacking off"
I really don't think that seeing a member of the NHS front line drinking a cup of coffee is EVER going to make me think that they are slacking off. In fact, if I saw a nurse drinking a cup of coffee in a public place, my first impression would be that they have worked through a break and are grabbing a drink on the go.
If you write down a list of professions that slack, would you put a Doctor or nurse on that list at all?
and yes, I do respect that everyone has a tale of a member of the NHS who has been caught slacking. In any profession there is always one or two, but to stop staff grabbing a hot drink in three hospitals in Leicester is, in my opinion, just another way of trying to get people to lose faith in the NHS.
I would love your opinion on this,
Let me know your thoughts.
