NHS Boss Critisises TV Hospital Dramas

18 Nov 09

Antony Sumara who runs the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Hospital Trust has critisised Hospital TV dramas for "painting the NHS and its doctors and nurses in a poor light and not reflecting real hospital life".

According to Mr Sumatra, patient confidentiality is breached constantly, where patient cases are discussed regularly between staff, and even with other patients, in full earshot of anyone that can hear, including the patient themselves. His concern is about the impression that young people will get of a career in the NHS when they watch programmes filled with unprofessionalism and poor conduct?

With the NHS being the largest employer in Britain, TV companies should be promoting hospital life in a more accurate and less "blurred reality" with "unrealistic views".
