If you assume she meant UK when she said England their are roughly 68 million people here although I think it's closure to 66 million.

Does she say the interpreter didn't show up and still got paid? Because she has no way of knowing this personally and as someone who signs off on interpreter attendance in my own clinics I'm inclined to believe it's shite. And I'd be much more concerned about the poor person who was sat in a hospital and couldn't be treated or even properly communicated with, but then I don't attend Free Tommy rallies so idk...

I think she might of meant the clinical staff although it's hard to tell as she isn't very coherent. When I worked in health care we tended to overbook clinics so I doubt they would've been idle.

She must think Sky Sports are hiring all the interpreters for that particular industry if standards are that poor.

Yeah, we factor in a DNA rate into clinic bookings as far as I'm aware so in theory the clinics are always fairly busy. It's all predictive though so sometimes it doesn't work. I work in diabetic eye screening so we don't discharge patients for non-attendance as you would in a standard outpatients setting. This means that there are people we haven't seen in five or ten years that we have to keep inviting, because it stands to reason if they're not engaging in their diabetic care there's a higher chance they're more at risk of the problems we're screening for.

Let's face it though, she'll probably be the sort of person who sees a nurse chasing up patient transport or test results on the front desk and thinks "OH AND THEY WERE ALL JUST ON THEIR PHONES NOT CARING FOR PATIENTS THIS BLOODY COUNTRY"

At least the person controlling the Yorkshire tea account is getting paid, whereas the ones sending all this abuse are just wasting their lives away getting offended at absolutely nothing.

I honestly don't think I could boycott Yorkshire Tea. Life just wouldn't be worth living.

I buy Clipper Organic and recycle my plastic-free teabags in a food bin.

He's not doing a very good job of selling this though. If you set yourself up as a help group for gammons and anime nazi fedora-wearing misogynists on Twitter then saying no sexism or racism is kind of limiting your audience.
