@slesiuk,
As someone who has spent more time in the hospital than many, why would you assume any hospital is competent at all times? I can recount horrendous mistakes, poor treatment, receiving the wrong medications including being prepped in the middle of the night for an operation that was intended for someone else. You have to stay on your toes.

@fresco,
Yep, that's what comes of promoting people to the level of their incompetence, then layering on several levels of unnecesary management, whilst making cutbacks at the coal face.

Typical New Labour, in fact. It happened in other areas of their government as well.

@slesiuk,
Hospitals by their very nature have to hire humans to staff their institution. Robots aren't advanced enough to do most of human jobs.

By nature, humans are flawed and make mistakes. Mistakes made in hospitals can carry major consequences (loss of limb or life for instance). When someone falls a victim to one of these mistakes? They tend to blame the person or persons involved. You know. The one who made the mistake who works for the hospital. By association, a person who works for a hospital represents the hospital. Yada yada.
