Managers, not medics, to blame for hospital problems

The doctors and nurses work hard at The Royal Blackburn Hospital to get people better. It is the bed managers who are responsible for discharging patients before they are well enough to be discharged.

They do not care who is well enough to go home so long as they meet the targets, which is bed turnover and they can be seen to be admitting people.

As for Gordon Birtwistle, in my opinion, this man is not fit to represent the people of Burnley.

He should be asked to stand down, as his whole campaign was based on saving Burnley General Hospital.

There was no chance of this happening (as he knew full well) these things are planned years in advance.

I for one will never vote Liberal Democrat again.
