No cervical screening backlog in NHS Scotland, no coverage in Scottish NoMedia

If I comment on missed targets headlining reports and broadcasts, I’m told they cannot suppress important information for the public. If I remind them of their selectivity in not reporting targets which are met, I get either no response or the strange notion that meeting targets is not news.

If I point to the humanitarian disaster that is NHS England under the Tories, I’m told it’s not relevant. I disagree, it’s useful context and so, undaunted, I persist. See the above on the 150 000 backlog in cervical screening faced by women in England. Hoo are things in Inverurie, I wonder?

Well, for the start there’s no backlog and the 95% target for returns on only 19 working days is sometimes met and the average looks to be around 23 days:

    “If I point to the humanitarian disaster that is NHS England under the Tories, I’m told it’s not relevant. I disagree, it’s useful context”.
    As the stated, new, aim of the BBC is to promote a sense of Britishness then the context is absolutely important, comparisons are essential. They are about Britishness then areas of best practise is essential in their news output and what is being done well in one part of the UK must be highlighted so it can be reproduced in another.
    But they are not about that, the BBC is a fake news organisation.
