Students and Reforms

I seem to be in the minority of medical students when I state I'm against the NHS reforms. Thats not true actually, most dont care. I should care more but I am not perfect, like most other students I care more about passing exams and finding patients with mitral regurgitation etc so that I can pass OSCEs as well.

Although unlike most of my college I also try very hard to have a life outside of medicine - it gets harder and harder.

But onto NHS reforms, its very hard to argue with fellow students when they point out the nice shiny building there sitting in built due to the PFI is a lot nicer for them and patients then the old, crumbling hospital building. And being cynical I think a huge proportion of them are looking to how much more money they could potentially earn under a future change- very shortsighted.

I have also found that people in favour of privatisation tend to be those people that can afford it.
