Ajaib Tapi Benar...UK PM stunned by angry outburst from Surgeon!

Leading surgeon interrupts Cameron hospital visit

A senior surgeon interrupted a hospital visit by David Cameron and Nick Clegg to complain that the TV crews filming them were not observing strict hygiene rules.

David Nunn left the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister stunned with his angry outburst during the walkabout at Guy’s hospital in London Bridge. 
He stormed into the ward shouting “sorry, sorry, sorry” as the politicians were about to sit down and talk to patients, before confronting the cameramen who had failed to roll up their sleeves as medics are required to do in order to combat the spread of superbugs in the NHS. 
Mr Nunn, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Guy’s since 1990, pointed out his own short sleeves and demanded: “Why is it that we’re all told to walk around like this, and these people aren’t?” 
He was ushered away by aides while Mr Clegg looked on open-mouthed, while Mr Cameron attempted to calm the situation by waving the cameramen towards the door. 
Mr Nunn started to speak to the Prime Minister but he held his hands up, said he agreed with him and explained to the TV crew: “It’s because we’ve all taken our ties off.”

In a filmed clip of the incident, which was posted online by ITV News and quickly went “viral” among Twitter users, the consultant can be seen standing outside the ward and shouting: “I’m not having it, now out.” 
He then stalks off as the camera crew make a hasty retreat. 

However they had been told by the ward sister that they did not need to abide by the “bare below the elbows” rules because they were not coming into close contact with patients, unlike the MPs, who were at the hospital to announce the latest NHS reform plans. 

A spokeswoman for Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust said: “Arrangements for today's visit were entirely consistent with the Trust's infection control policy. 

“One individual member of staff expressed concern with one element of the infection control measures employed, but this was not a view shared by the wider team.” 

Mr Nunn had previously written to The Daily Telegraph about the “dress code” imposed on his hospital. 

“I now have to half undress to see my patients, and have certainly not been provided with any protective uniform, any more than I was provided with a white coat,” he wrote in 2007.
“While I wholeheartedly endorse any measure to reduce the risk of infection, I cannot see this but as window dressing. The problem of cross-infection in hospitals in Britain is caused by an adherence to the use of open wards instead of individual rooms, and by the level of bed-occupancy caused by the reduction of total bed numbers, and the need to ‘hot-bed’ to achieve government-dictated targets.” 

The hip replacement specialist, who qualified in 1978 and also carries out private work, made the news in 2002 when he complained that foreign nurses could not understand his instructions. 

He said at the time: “The world has been scoured for nurses to shore up the health service. All are without doubt, well trained and dedicated. 

“But if medical staff cannot communicate effectively then patients’ care may be put at risk.”
