Details of the appalling nursing care endured by many elderly patients in NHS hospitals

BBC News reports on some of the individual personal accounts of suffering and neglect brought to public attention earlier this week by the Patients Association.

Details of these individual case studies are indicative of the appalling standards of healthcare offered to too many unfortunate sick people in NHS hospitals.

I find the tone of the comments by the spokespeople for the hospitals chilling. There seems to be no real appreciation of the horror these patients/victims have endured at the hands of the 'caring' professions. The indefensible is defended with shocking complacency.

Some further individual accounts, reported in the Telegraph:
Ann McNeill
Colin Purkiss
Thomas Dalziel.

And here is a young doctor's concerned account of a personal recollection of lack of care and compassion on NHS wards: Dr Max Pemberton writing in the Telegraph.

The government has responded with Statistics not Care.
