Opposition grows over closure of DH nursing unit


ANONYMOUS 8 JULY, 2016 7:46 AM Thank you, whoever you are. I have a reasonably thick skin - an insult without any logic to it, will not bother me very much. I got an e-mail from one of my contacts recently, and I used a redacted version of it yesterday in an e-mail asking about the new DH promise to promote a National Conversation about Dying and Death. The redacted (to prevent identification) of that e-mail was: ‘Dear Mike, I just wanted to write to you as ‘me’ rather than in a way that might be seen as representing the XXXXX … I’m very glad that the thrust of your thinking is around improving practice for the future: we can deplore poor practice in the past, and, though unable to change what happened, it’s good to use this knowledge to improve the experience of people in the future. I would suspect, and this is only my personal opinion, that many of your correspondents see the sense and value in your suggestions, as do I, but may be inhibited by their public persona and hence sometimes reply stiffly or without passion. … With very best wishes for your continued energy and the logical approach you bring to identifying areas for improvement’
