Dear Santa, here's my NHS Christmas list

Dear Santa, My Daddy is very busy looking after al the sic pepol, so I'm sending you a list for his Christmas stocking.

Is that al rite? Mr Cameron (our Prime Minister) has said he wants people to be happy, and I'd like you to make my Dady happy too.

1. My Daddy thinks its a grate idea to put doctors in charge of looking after Sick Peple.

But if he's got to run the NHS instead of the PCTs (and with much less money) please culd you tell the DoH and the SHAs to get rid of the hundreds of detailed legul, organisashunal and boorocratic jobs they keep saying he'll have to take over from the PCT?

My Dady says that if the management fee is tiny then he won't be able to afford to do them anyway.

Unless he does it all himself. I don't want to see him only on Sunday afternoons.

3. Plse will you make the NHS simpler? There are too many cooks counting the chickens rather than stirring the plum puddings. And a stitch in time saves a trip to casualty, doesn't it?

2. Unlike you, my dady cant be in two places at once. (He says you do it by the quantum slit effect, and that I won't understand it.) If he's looking after the Sick Peple he won't be able to go to lots of meetings or give managers any statis ... count things.

I don't want him to turn into a quantum slit, or disappear for the rest of the year, like you do.

7. I'd like to be a doctor, like my daddy. please cud you tell Mr Cameron to make sure that if I get into medical scool, there are enuf house jobs waiting and that I'm not unem ... unem ... haven't got a job?

Please can you make all these things happen? It would be great if you cud. But if you can't, can I have a Wii instead?
