Every one is going on and on about this bloke being a surgeon. My wife - who only worked in hospitals for over 40 years - is convinced he is a manager, who get massive amounts of money for doing very, very little except make work for each other.

He is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon not a manager. For a different viewpoint suggest you read this article Telegraph as it would appear that the ward sister had given permission for the TV crew's dress. he would also appear to have "previous" Sky report

"Everyone is going on and on about this bloke being a surgeon"

That's probably because he is a surgeon.

As I retired Hospital Chief Executive I'm still laughing. For the unitiated Surgeons are God and Orthopaedic Surgeons think they are even higher. I used to have 24 of this country's finest Othopods to manage and I can assure you every day was exiting to say the least. This was clearly a post recovery ward so if normal barrier precautions were taken then normal visitors would not be a problem so I've no grumbles about the mode of dress of anyone including the surgeon.. The camera crew's equipment could however have caused problems to delecate equipment like electronic morphine syringe drivers plugged into patients as even mobile phones are not allowed in this area.

Someone has made an error in arranging a visit to such an area but I must say that the PM's decision taken in an awkward moment was certainly the correct one, and as much as I have no time for him, He got brownie points from me.

The surgeon went a bit overboard but that is what they do.

Yes I thought Cameron handled it quite well but Nick Clegg looked like a rabbit in the headlights !most people want Matrons back on the ward and the consultants reaction I am sure would have been the same as an old style Matron.

I wonder what David Cameron's reaction would be if a film crew doing a documentary went and filmed a cabinet meeting ? I wonder if Jim can still fix it
