Sym­pa­thy for the doc­tors

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

ABOUT twenty five years ago I had the mis­for­tune to suf­fer a heart attack. I was treated in a to­tally em­pa­thetic and pro­fes­sional man­ner and us­ing the lat­est tech­niques by ju­nior doc­tors.

In the past month a friend had the same sort of prob­lem and, like me, was treated to­tally pro­fes­sion­ally. His treat­ment from ar­rival by am­bu­lance to leav­ing the­atre on his way to a ward was achieved in just 19 min­utes. Again by ju­nior doc­tors.

Need­less to say the doc­tors have my to­tal re­spect. It galls me, there­fore, to see the way the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion led by Jeremy Hunt is dar­ing to treat them with such cav­a­lier dis­dain and dis­re­spect.

I would en­cour­age all lo­cal vot­ers, ir­re­spec­tive of party, to do their ut­most to pres­sure the gov­ern­ment to seek a proper way out of the cur­rent self in­flicted im­passe. Mr Hunt needs our ad­vice as he clearly lacks the wit to do it him­self. JOHN HUBBERSTEY Vil­lier Street Uxbridge
