Tory Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt called the emergency services today, after his foot became jammed in his mouth whilst he explained the rationale behind cutting the pay of junior doctors.
A DoH spokesperson said “The Minister would have preferred to be treated properly, under his BUPA plan. Unfortunately, the ambulance driver became deaf en route and by mistake took him to a hospital which treats the people who voted for him”.
Once hospital staff recognised their VIP patient, Mr Hunt was taken to an empty corner of the waiting room, in case people who’d been waiting since yesterday also spotted him and tried to exact some primitive form of vengeance. “We actually put a dart board and an archery target above his bed ” said Hannah, a junior doctor “but sadly the other patient didn’t realise who he was.”
“As he insisted he knew all about medicine and the NHS,” said Hannah “we let him diagnose his own problem,. That’s why we’re treating him for Tennis Arse.”
