Scottish Labour MSP: ‘2.4% of Scottish doctors have gone to work feeling ill!’

2.4% is a WHOLE QUARTER so it is!

LATEST: More than 2.4% of the rest of us have gone to work feeling ill!

On Monday at Holyrood:

Monica Lennon (Central Scotland) (Scottish Labour): To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to a recent BMA Scotland survey of 800 doctors, which reported that 71% of respondents said that they had gone to work when they felt too ill to do so.

Jeane Freeman: A holding answer was provided.

There are around 18 000 doctors and consultants in NHS Scotland.

There are a further 5 000 GPs.

800 respondents equals 3.5% of all doctors.

71% of the 800 sample equals 568 equals 2.4% of all doctors.

A self-selecting sample is unreliable.

Sigh.

  1. And this at a time of an epic public health crisis!

    How stupid does anyone have to be to become an anti-SNP politician?

    “Disgust” does not begin to describe the nausea we all must feel at such inane, time and energy wasting. political posturing.
