New Novel Looks at British NHS from the Inside
Date:1/20/2013

Surrey, England (PRWEB) January 21, 2013

Acklima Akbar’s new novel “And Then There Was Swine Flu: The Diary of an NHS Manager” (published by AuthorHouse) offers an invaluable and rare insight into what makes the British National Health Service the fascinating monolith that it has become over the centuries. In it, she explores many of the topics so relevant around the world, such as the monetary cost of health care versus care standards.

“I worked in the NHS for 29 years as a nurse, a senior nurse then as a Clinical Services Manager,” Akbar says. “During this time I was privileged to share a wealth of experience with some fascinating characters.”

An excerpt from “And Then There Was Swine Flu”:

“Mary responds, ‘I shall answer this. Of course we cannot enforce a rule that the majority of you are totally against but saying that, we can reasonably request key members of staff to report for duty during a crisis. This is in the Code Red Policy handbook. When we join the NHS we commit ourselves to providing a service and this is one of the times when it is crucial that you honour your commitment. Failure to cooperate will not bring about the end of your career but a willingness to cooperate will certainly enhance it.’”

Akbar knows, from her decades of experience in the field, that there is an audience for her book. “The storyline and the characters will resonate with anyone who is in the medical field or indeed has an interest in hospitals and the people who work there.”
