    MRSA victim's family say true problem being covered up

    From the East Anglian Daily Times: MRSA family critical of Prime Minister

    Speaking after watching yesterday's interview, Mr Fenton said: “I didn't feel reassured about the situation. I feel MRSA is still being covered up and the figures aren't true.” Mrs Fenton added: “He seemed very blasé. He had a big smile on his face and there was nothing to smile about. “We want to see him take it more seriously. Maybe for him it's a rare thing, but it's costing people lives, both young and old. We were disappointed really. “The cleaning business is a very important issue. Cleaning is contracted out to the cheapest bidder, which is not always the right thing to do. “We'd like to see a strict training regime for all cleaners, answerable under one umbrella - which is not the case at the moment.”
    That's what introducing a competitive marketplace does for the NHS. Blair & Co are responsible, and should be held responsible on the 5th May. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Oh really ?
    Only the government knows how to run a cleaning crew ?
    What rubbish.

    It's OK to let out a contract but the contractors must be supervised - held to the agreed terms. In this case sounds like both the NHS and the cleaners are to blame.

    The MRSA scandal seems to have worsened since Blair & Co introduced the competitive marketplace to the NHS. A competitive marketplace means more interest in money than in patients, and that's the problem here.
