Northern Ireland patients asked to stay away! Nobody accused of anything

From BBC Northern Ireland today:

A third Northern Ireland hospital has urged people to stay away except in cases of medical emergency.

On Sunday the Western Trust said 38 people were waiting in the South West Acute Hospital’s emergency department and 15 waiting to be admitted.

The Ulster and Craigavon Hospitals also said they were under extreme pressure.

Dr Alan Stout, British Medical Association NI’s GP committee chair, said this was a sign of just how sick people are.

He said it was not about access to GPs, and patients “largely needed to be in ED”.

Imagine that was in Scotland?

Patients told to stay away!

Their BMA rep suggesting that there is not a shortage of staff in GP practices!

No mention anywhere of the NI Health Secretary.

No one ‘accused.’

You can hear the opposition politicians on Reporting Scotland now, see their faces.

Just like BBC Wales and BBC UK/England, health issues not politicised.

Scotland? Easy meat for the rodents.

  2. What a disgrace that is happening at all in the so called UK. Shouldn’t the ‘UK’ government step in to help NI? It’s not looking for them, perhaps the EngGov could send in the army, oh, not a good idea.

    Scotland is gas lighted, bullied, and attacked with BritNat propaganda for a reason, to keep the fear factor going, and the lies being believed, the myth, that Scotland just isn’t ‘genetically programmed’ to manage their own affairs, or whatever it was that troughing BritNat woman in Holyrood said, not so long ago.
    When you have a media controlled by an extremely right wing country next door, any notion of democracy or being in an ‘equal union’ goes out the window.
    Scotland is a colony, an occupied country, only independence can end that backward and incredibly destructive era.
