What I liked
My neice entered Lister for a routine operation. It went horribly wrong, she needed blood to survive, it took 40 minutes for the relevant person to get it to her. She died several months later having never regained conscientious. She was 30 years old, fit and healthy. It should have been a simple procedure thousands of which are carried out every year without a problem.
A thirty year old girl had her life taken from her. It wasn't because of spending cuts or lack of staff, it was because somebody did not do something quickly enough to save her life. How tragic this is. This person probably isn’t even aware of the catastrophic results.
