A Scottish nurse has posted a video to social media about her experiences working in the UK’s NHS hospital system during the COVID pandemic.
In the video she says she has left her job because ‘she could no longer be part of the lies and corruption by the government.’ She then goes on to describe the situation on the wards, and the feelings of other health professionals, she says are too scared to speak out.
A full transcript of the video is below.
Tonight I’ve done my last shift on the bank. I resigned from my post, my permanent post, about five weeks ago. I could no longer be part of the lies and the corruption by the government – not by the NHS. I mean I’ve absolutely loved working there, working with amazing teams, amazing nurses, amazing, amazing people.
Silence is consent as far as I’m concerned. The hospitals aren’t full. The beds aren’t full. Beds have been shut. Wards have been shut. Very little people have passed. And I am so sorry to every person that’s passed due to illness with the coronavirus. My family have lost two people. One deemed questionable about COVID on their death certificate.
I’ve been trying to speak out. I’ve been writing letters to the government. I’ve spoke out to UNISON. I have questioned everything that’s been going on for a long period of time. Vaccine roll-out, vaccine injury, realising that it was an experimental agent that is going to keep going, because they need to actually use the lockdowns as an ’emergency medicine’. So they need to keep the lockdowns going to make sure people are getting vaccinated. There’s no emergencies. The hospitals are not busy. They never have been.
We’ve not seen flu. We’ve always seen flu, every year, and it’s so sad, because people die. People die and lose their lives. We are born to die. We’re born with disease, with viruses.
The lockdown is affecting people more than this virus ever has, ever. There’s so many of us trying to speak out. So many of the colleagues I’ve worked are scared. They’re scared of losing their job. That’s what’s going on.
I’m now unemployed. I’ll start looking for a job. I’ve been trying so hard, so hard, to reach out. I was on my own for a very long period of time, and everyone now that I speak to, state that they felt so alone, so scared. I’m not. I’m not doing it anymore. I’m not being part of it.
My colleagues, they don’t want to be part of it either. They don’t want to be part of it either. I honestly don’t know what else is going to stop this because the vaccine roll-out is going to be happening to our children. I have seen traumatic injuries from the vaccine. They’re not getting reported to the Yellow Card Scheme. They’re treating the symptoms, not asking why, why it’s happening. It’s just treating the symptoms, and when you speak about it you’re dismissed like you’re crazy.
I’m not crazy. I’m not crazy because every other colleague I’ve spoke to is terrified to speak out. They’ve had enough. They’ve had enough of the mask-wearing. My head’s splitting every shift from wearing the mask in a ward with six patients. I’m looking after six patients sometimes. I’ve been doing bank work [note: ‘bank work’ is a term used in the NHS system for temporary/casual hours to help fill in for unexpected staffing shortfalls]. So I’ve been going around all the wards, and I can see in every ward, they’re treating this pandemic different.
They’ve got beds short in some wards and not in others. And then Nicola Sturgeon [First Minister of Scotland] on the television say the hospitals, ‘save the NHS’, but the beds are empty.
Guys, this is not what is seems. So please, please listen. Nurses and doctors, pharmacists, paramedics, NHS 111 24 call workers, doctors, GPs, physios, OTs, alternative therapy medicines, these people are coming forward and we are all going to speak out. We’re going to speak the truth.
And I’m sorry the government have influenced you by control of social media, control of mainstream media, and you haven’t listened.
This is it now. It stops now. The lies stop now. I have to speak out. My kids.
