One doctor's account of working under the Government's Covid response
This makes me so angry. No one forces you to go against your conscience. If all the NHS had used their moral compass the jabs would have had to be withdrawn.
I feel angry about this! I lost my job, my 20 year marriage, 99% of my friends AND my family. I now only have my 2 adult children (in their 20's) and one friend in my life. I am a heart beat away from being homeless. This doctor was NOT FORCED just cowardly, weak and immoral.
I concur with the sentiments expressed here by many people, some of whom have lost everything. I was a nurse in Australia and was utterly horrified by the vast majority of so-called pandemic management measures. I left soon after and haven't looked back. What we healthcare professionals have subjected our patients to during this period is unforgivable, and people must accept responsibility for their decisions. I have sympathy for the pressures many doctors, nurses and allied health workers have faced, but it was no more significant than other workers who found themselves on the receiving end of ridiculous mandates. If anything, we healthcare workers accept a higher burden of responsibility when entering our respective professions and we simply MUST put our ethical obligations above our pay cheques. We may have empathy and compassion for people like this doctor, but we are right to stop short of grouping him/her with those who stood up from the outset at enormous personal and professional expense.
This is sad for everyone. My daughter qualified as a doctor last year. I am proud of her achievement especially as she didn’t get a place at medical school straight away and entered as a mature student. But I continually ask myself what kind of system has she entered. I’ve long avoided conventional medicine deciding that it held no answers for me. I try to take as much responsibility as possible for my own health as I never want to end up in a hospital anywhere let alone the U.K.
I also felt that if the majority of doctors had stood up that this nonsense would have stopped sooner but they didn’t and they haven’t. I feel sorry for everyone who has suffered in a myriad of ways because of this ‘pandemic’. We have all been traumatised in so many ways.
If doctors had stood by their oath this crime against humanity could have been stopped before it got off the ground. No one forced him to comply, he could have made a stand and did the right and good thing. No good crying anonymously now. He knew what he was doing was wrong. Many of us were able to refuse to comply and lost jobs, family, friends etc. It's too late now to cry.
I don’t understand how so many of these comments are so despising and full of hatred. People have families to support and potentially no other option of employment. This is modern slavery people! I commend those who were able to walk away but don’t agree that condemning those who couldn’t is going to help anyone. No one knows this person’s circumstances or if they spoke out within their job? From this article i think it’s highly likely they did!
This is just another version of "I was just following orders". If more doctors, nurses, medical professionals in general had stood on their own two feet, grown a pair, and refused to comply, then the narrative would have collapsed. This may sound harsh, but we used to rely on the doctors, nurses, etc to be truthful, instead of which the majority either believed the lie, or just went along to get along.
In Canada, there are 32 dead doctors, all young in the 24 - 50 age group who went along to get along.
I've just walked past my GP surgery:"Please continue to wear a mask while on the premises". Why?
Increasingly I too, have difficulty in responding to gagged faces in any hitherto normal way.
Truly dystopia is upon us and anomie is the default setting, especially for those of us who have resisted the madness from the outset.
Congratulations to Dr Smith for writing this alarming account and how much longer will we have to endure this dictatorship?
It seems that Professor Vallance,one of the chief doom mongers and chart purveyors, is now planning a similar assault to ensure that we all comply with the Climate Change agenda: unelected busybodies and 'experts' with too much influence.
Cry me a friggin river. Assuming a gun was not pointed at anyone's head, nobody was forced to do a single thing. The bribes (so-called hazard pay) was all it took for these crimes to be committed. Had they spoken up long ago, those of us who actually have morals and integrity might not have been forced out of our careers.
Without ethics, we are lost. This was a test of our humanity, and tragically, so many of our fellow humans failed - themselves and us. Just as Dr Zimbardo looked on, paralysed with shock as the horrors of his immoral ‘experiment’ were revealed so quickly, so were Governments around the world over the past 2.5 years, drunk with power to cause ‘moral injury’. Now is the time for accountability. Only then can we begin to heal the complex trauma described here. And regain and reclaim, our shared humanity.

Non -medics. who read a lot of material can see that the takeover by the medical-industrial complex has got worse, not better, after every scandal. Medical interventions seem to have been the 3rd. largest cause of death for a long time after heart disease and cancer. If causes of death were more carefully assessed, would pharmaceuticals now be the leading cause?
Oh spare me poor victim - spare us all. If you are told to take actions that you know harm others, and do it anyway because you are 'following orders' in any sense, you make yourself culpable. Claiming you have 'moral injury' afterwards doesn't wash. We make this world, action by action, moment by moment. Many courageous health professionals stood up against this blatant tyranny from the outset. They should be lauded, applauded, and sympathised with. Those who carried on implementing this horror ... to this very day... - not so much. Wake up and grow up springs to mind.
