First of all I ask you to watch this video. During the COVID-19 epidemic cancer patients on Dr Adil’s list who were due for treatment were put on hold while most of the beds were taken over by the Infection Control Department” something he saw for the first time in his thirty years as a consultant and surgeon. Beds in his ward lay empty and only emergency life-threatening procedures went ahead. Other patients were dealt with over the telephone which he quite rightly claims is unsatisfactory.
Dr. Adil is one of the few people speaking out about what is going on in hospitals. And for telling the truth he has been suspended for twelve months and may yet be struck off. Other doctors have spoken out but because of threats they have been forced to spread their messages under the cloak of anonymity.
Back in early April a senior NHS source told the health journal HSJ: “There could be some very serious unintended consequences [to all the resource going into fighting coronavirus]. While there will be a lot of covid-19 fatalities, we could end up losing more ‘years of life’ because of fatalities relating to non-covid-19 health complications.
“What we don’t want to do is take our eye off the ball in terms of all the core business and all the other healthcare issues the NHS normally attends to.”
Then there is the consultant from Surrey who was too frightened to identify because he or she had a family. Staff were being silenced with threats of job-loss. Here is that consultant’s full message plus an extract directly below.
“In the months from March to June (inclusive) we would normally expect to see 100,000 out patients, around 30,000 patients admitted to hospital and perhaps 30,000 pass through A&E. This year (and these figures are almost impossible to get hold of) we are over 95% down on all those numbers. In effect, the hospital has been pretty much empty for that entire period.
At the start, staff that questioned this were told that we were being used as ‘redundant’ capacity, kept back for the ‘deluge’ we were told would come. It never did come, and when staff began to question this, comments like, ‘for the greater good’ and to ‘protect the NHS’ came down from above. Now its just along the lines of, ‘Shut up or you don’t get paid’.”
Dr Malcolm Kendrick has a very successful blog with a large following. His speciality is heart disease and he does not take the conventional view that statins are good for heart patients. That is what attracts so many to his blog and what attracted me. I believe statins are only good for Big Pharma.
Recently he has been blogging about COVID-19 and on 6 April Dr Kendrick wrote:
“Our local hospital now has more empty beds than at any time in history. Elective surgery has stopped, to free up resources. There is enormous managerial pressure to clear more and more people out of hospital, out of Intermediate Care beds, back home with little support available. Some of them will die because of this.”
Best to read his blog-piece in its entirety because he confirms what others in the medical profession have been saying when allowed to speak about it. He observed that at present we have virtually shut down the NHS to deal with COVID-19.
Here is a video interview of a nurse of more than 30 years experience, Kay Allison Shemirani, who has concluded that the NHS is not there to save your life but to get you sick and keep you sick. Money is the motive. She too has been suspended for speaking out in this ‘free world’ of ours.
It would not be too difficult to find out whether patients are being dealt with over the phone, not being seen in hospital when they should have been, sent home to die and other aspects of the “new norm” by simply asking the general public their experiences.
For example, I know the husband of one person admitted to hospital with a high temperature, a sore throat and other COVID-19-type symptoms. A COVID-19 notice went on her bed and remained there for the whole of her admission. It turned out she had a bacteriological infection. Suspected COVID-19 went on her release notes her husband said.
So back to Dr Mohammad Iqbal Adil. There is a petition to get him reinstated. I do hope everyone will sign and share it. Thanks.
