Lashley slams QEH board


Share post:

Listen to Dr Maurice Walrond and don’t chastise him, urges former Government minister Stephen Lashley.

He slammed the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s (QEH) board for charging the consultant surgeon for publicly airing his concerns about patient safety after they ignored him, and suggested that instead of such heavy-handed action, to investigate the substance of what Walrond is saying and if a problem exists to quickly fix it.

“The QEH should understand that doctors’ response to Covid-19 requires a new paradigm that cannot be constrained by ordinarily useful but currently irrelevant rules. And it’s not only Dr Waldron who feels some things need urgent attention, he is supported, it seems, by 11 fellow surgeons. Will the QEH waste precious time trying to discipline them too?” Lashley rhetorically asked.

In its letter to Walrond, the QEH’s board said he had breached the terms and conditions of his employment by making lengthy contributions on Starcom Network’s Down To Brass Tacks radio call-in programmes on May 11 and May 12 programmes. (SP)
