Apologies for the source but its the only one I can find.


I admit I am not a fan of shiney Dave but I have other reasons for watching this with glee, totally unrelated to politics.


Dont care really grin

Just seen this on the news grin. Unfortunately it's probably the poor ward staff who'll get it in the neck from the hospital management for causing an embarrassment.

I bet they are all in hysterics.

I bloody hate people going for photo ops on the ward and tramping in their horrid germs.

We had to beat the feckers off with a stick when DD was on oncology ward.

One tv crew just walked into our room with the camera on.

I had to kick them out. They didnt listen when I aske them to leave. They kept saying 'oh its ok we just want some shots' angry

It was clear as day it the doctors perogative to have a go...he seemed justified and David Cameron did seem mortified, it should not be the ward staff who get in trouble. No one should actually, the doctor had a very valid point, hospitals shouldn't be a place for PR opportunities but places of convalescence

Thats terrible MrsDeVere, fucking vulchers.

lol NU at all, i cant stand Cameron or anything tory related ( but then im Scottish so its in my blood grin )
Its about time someone put him in his place, who the f* does he think he is, im sick of him playing soldiers with tax payers money, every time i see his arrogant face i want to punch it, at least he cant f* up the NHS in Scotland cuz good old Alex Salmond wont let him.

Yes I saw it on the news too! It was great! Haha!

Wandering around with their vile tory germs ick.

Yes pam they were insensitive twats. DD was very very ill and 14 years old. She didnt want her best friends to see her let alone a bunch of strangers looking for a tear jerking photo op.

I nearly killed them. They did look a bit suprised to see a mad woman flying at them telling them to fuck off in a very quiet but menacing voice.

Do they really think we are all so desperate to be on tv?

Woo hoo well done mr surgeon
Tbh DH always hates it when they parade people through the hospital for PR opportunities (his is a regional centre of excellence so they are always flashing camera crews thro)
He doesn't mind speaking to the press about stuff he's passionate about (and does regularly) but doesn't like doing it at the hospital especially politicians using patients as a sympathetic backdrop angry

We had some nice slebs visit. Kelly Holmes was lovely. She spoke to all the kids one by one and spent ages with them. I have a lovely pic of her and DD together.

Dr Fox however is a knob. He used to rock up at Christmas (cos the kids dont need any attention off peak do they?) and sit in the middle of the table with the kids gathered around him. Holding court with a bunch of 3-12 year olds who didnt have a clue who he was hmm

You get to know who is doing it for themselves and who does it for the kids.

I know someone v.famous very well and they do a lot of visiting and no one knows about it.

MPs and PMs can feck right off IMO. What possible reason have the got apart from showboating.

Hehe, brilliant. I can't stand Call Me Dave (boak) either. Regardless though, the consultant had every right to say that, didn't he?

thefirstMrsDeVere Tue 14-Jun-11 19:25:52

I think so.
I would have done.

I got very lairy after two years living in hospital with DD. I used to tell everyone to wash their bloody hands.

People are so lazy.

One woman was merrily coming into the ward with armfuls of notes from all over the hospital. I asked her to wash her hands. She said 'I am only bring these in'.
Yes but you have been in and out of half a dozen wards already 'only' bringing these in'

Visitors would do the same. How HARD is it to wash your hands.

That reminds me. Didnt the tories have a bill board campaign 'how hard is it to keep a hosptial clean?'

Fucking hard if dirty film crews and PMs keep coming in and out.

TidyDancer Tue 14-Jun-11 19:28:17

When I went to visit one of my parents in hospital earlier this year, I obsessively washed my hands. On the way in, when I got to the end of the bed, on the way out, etc. I got weird looks. And I was the only one doing it.

Why is it so bloody difficult to get through to people about this?!

thefirstMrsDeVere Tue 14-Jun-11 19:32:07

I still dont know. After watching it happen in four different hosptials over two years I still cant work it out.

All sorts do it. They seem to think it doesnt apply to them.

The amount of times I had to say 'you going to wash your hands before you touch my daughter?'

The hospitals make it so easy too. Mind you I was also the annoying person who used to tell the staff that the dispensers by the door were empty. Over and over and over till they got them refilled.
But then when your child's life may depend on it you are pretty motivated.

TidyDancer Tue 14-Jun-11 19:41:08

Yes, I don't blame you for a second for being proactive about it, I barked at staff about the dispensers, I would've been absolutely raging in your situation. I really do think you're right about the "it doesn't apply to me" point as well.
