NHSBlog has been created to
evolve into a responsible forum for members to share their experiences,
knowledge, opinions and advice with others, in order to give a full,
frank and truthful picture of the NHS.
Patients and their relatives, and staff in all
disciplines and at all levels, view the NHS from different perspectives,
yet together they constitute the sum total of how the NHS is perceived.
NHSBlog intends to assemble a well-organised and
easily searchable database of members’ contributions that
will be fully and freely available to all. If we succeed in our
aim then hopefully it can, in some small way, influence the way
our NHS is run.
However, in order to have any hope of success,
contributions need to be constructive, sober and, above all, objective.
Members' forums will be opened as soon as (and
if) the volume of emailed contributions becomes too great for manual
updates to be a viable method of operation.
Try to be balanced in your writing by giving
due credit for all the good things that the NHS achieves. We don’t
ask that you pull any punches when you feel the need to make a negative
contribution - but please be fair and honest.
If NHSBlog is to command respect, that respect
must begin with that of our members for NHSBlog
