So I did my talk at the Guardian Public Services Summit.
I managed to tell a load of people in suits (including people from the Department of Health) that the ORCON target is clinically worthless.
I feel like I have justified five years of blogging.
If you think that I am wrong in my assessment of ORCON then you can post a comment here and we can enter into an open discussion. This being part of my talk about how blogging can break down the barriers between blogging.
I hope that some of those DoH managers can see fit to spend ten minutes a day casting their eyes over some of the UK medical blogs out there in order to get a real view of what it is like to work for the NHS.
