Grim reaper stalks Tameside...

Yet another of Bevan's death camps has hit the headlines -

"Patients looking up Tameside General Hospital on Google were given a deathly surprise when searches returned a picture of the grim reaper outside the building. Google has now stepped in to take down the image – which was revealed to anyone typing the name of the hospital into the search engine...The image had been created and uploaded to a blogging website carrying critical articles about death rates at Tameside General. The haunting picture then managed to rise to the top of Google's ranking system for searches for the hospital."

The hospital's death rate is 18% above the national average.

Incidentally, if you'd prefer to speak to an ex-plumber about your medical condition rather than a nurse, you'll now be able to. The professional advice line NHS Direct has just been replaced by a much cheaper helpdesk service called NHS 111. Employing medical ignoramuses whose first language is Polish might be a recipe for disaster, but the scheme meets with the approval of the European Union. So that's all right then.
