NHS CHIEF AWARDED MASSIVE COMPENSATION FOR FAINTING ON THE JOB – Roger Tarver, 68, an NHS hospital chief executive fainted at work. After recovering he put it down to long hours and excessive stress and as a result the taxpayer was once again forced to fork out.
Roger Tarver was awarded, by a tribunal, £370,000 in cash and £24,000 a year for life; this compensation award came after he described the stressful condition that he says has left him psychologically scarred and with heart problems.
Once again the taxpayer is fully able to see why our NHS system is collapsing, why it cannot often provide basic care and why thousands of people have to wait years for treatment.
The NHS is simply throwing money at anyone who cares to claim and yet despite this madness the Government and the public appear blasé over the ongoing waste; waste that is costing people’s lives and preventing so many from receiving adequate treatment.
So we can clearly come to the conclusion that if you’re a Government pen-pusher who feels a little stressed you’ll be awarded a vast payout; unfortunately if you are one of those who actually work for a living, such as a soldier in Afghanistan, where you are horrifically injured in the line of duty, then you can expect the Government to turn its back on you.
I sometimes despise the British people and often I am ashamed of my heritage. The British were once a stand up bunch who wouldn’t take any nonsense; today we’ve become spineless and are easily duped by any and all of the rhetoric the Government churns out.
Whatever happened to common sense, decency, pride and above all the ability to correct an error in the system?
According to public records the taxpayer shelled out £77 million in compensation claims from NHS workers; many of the claims being trivial. In stark contrast £44 million was paid out in compensation claims to armed forces personnel, however most of these claims were valid due to horrific injuries sustained whilst on the battlefield.
Just look at the figures because it doesn’t take a genius to figure this out:
- The NHS is falling apart due to incompetence. In turn this is preventing people from getting treatment and in the worst case scenarios costing lives.
- The British Armed Forces personnel are ill-equipped to do the job; the Government provides them with third rate equipment and then expects them to stand in the line of fire and yet when they are injured or killed the Government turn their backs.
The disparaging compensation costs between the NHS and the Armed Services clearly shows just how the taxpayer is being fleeced but worse how little we care – even if that lack of care costs lives; and you wonder why I’m ashamed of being British.
Think I’m wrong? Take the case of Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson. Ben lost both legs defending our liberty and attempting to keep us safe from terrorist attack during his time in Afghanistan. He was offered just £152,000 in compensation plus a £19,000-a-year pension.
You might be wondering why NHS officials are awarded such vast payouts; the answer to that is also simple – the Unions.
Since their creation the Unions have been fundamental in tearing Britain apart. Take the coal mining industry; are you really blind enough to believe Margaret Thatcher was responsible?
The truth is the Unions demanded so much, mostly to line their own pockets, this resulted in the coal mines became too expensive to operate. It was simply a matter of pure economics and yet the whole of British industry was going in the same direction.
Look at Rover, British Leyland and dozens of other state run business; all were in the hole financially because the Unions refused to allow people to work and be productive.
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that our system of Government and how we compensate people is archaic and yet the Government through its incompetence is unable to do anything about it and the British people appear simply not to care.
I can only surmise that the British people deserve to be fleeced by the Government and when the EU finally put an end to the British identity it will be seen by the rest of the world as no great loss.
