On Monday, In our BNC session, we had to make a chant for a protest, to do with the NHS. Our group decided to do one about modernising it. This means putting better systems in place, resulting in less waiting and fewer errors when looking for patient's medical records. In the PowerPoint that we watched the man said, "that the systems took fifteen minutes to load up a patient's medical records." This means that it is less efficient and it also causes the rest of the day to not run smoothly. Furthermore, if a patient's records cannot load up efficiently, that means that the hospital isn't sure of what medication to give them since they might be allergic to something. For example, old people have many different health problems so if the NHS gave them new medication, they would be unaware of how it could affect their other illnesses. Although people could just tell the doctors what they cannot have, people who are deaf or visually impaired would find it difficult to communicate.
Our chant is below and it is best if you chant or sing it to the chorus of "Macarena."
The NHS is failing,
We need to sort it out now,
The systems are failing so people could die,
Let's do this protest here and right now,
