  • My letter to BMJ on Tooke's defense of the Shape of Training
    on Feb 3, 2014
    I read Professor Sir John Tooke’s recent editorial with great interest (1) and it is strange that he sees the Shape of Training review as a ‘broad consensus’ of opinion. Professor Sir John’s ‘MMC inquiry’ concluded that: “The policy...
  • DH and Hunt are disingenuously spinning data
    on Dec 19, 2013
    The NHS is in crisis because the current government have wasted billions in yet more corrupt market based reforms which will enrich private firms at the expense of the tax payer.  Sadly those in control, Jeremy and the Department of Health, don't wa...
  • Department of Health has no record of Brian Jarman's meeting with Jeremy Hunt
    on Nov 8, 2013
      Firstly I do not agree with Brian Jarman on many things but I have the utmost respect for his integrity as a researcher and a human being.  Therefore I have no doubt then when he says the following, he is speaking the truth:   "I met Je...
  • Why does my shoulder hurt?
    on Oct 29, 2013
    The aim of this piece is to summarise my understanding of why things hurt and specifically, why the shoulder hurts. Obviously this is one monstrously huge topic and it is beyond the scope of a short blog piece to describe everything in minute detail...
  • Professor Jarman's reliance on the c-statistic
    on Sep 20, 2013
    There is so so much more to this UK/US HSMR comparison that first meets the eye, at first glance there were some significant flaws and assumptions made, but the more digging I have done, the more gaps I seem to be finding in certain peoples' robust c...
  • HSMRs, coding, big assumptions and implausible conclusions....
    on Sep 19, 2013
    The second major flaw in Prof Brian Jarman's UK/US mortality comparison is that it assumes HSMRs are reliable and coding is equivalent in the UK and US.  If either of these assumptions is false then the comparison is definitely on extremely dubi...
  • Many big assumptions have been made: 1. HES Data
    on Sep 16, 2013
    The US/UK HSMR comparison made by Prof Brian Jarman is continuing to rumble on and probably not for reasons that will please the Professor.  Since the leaking of the data to the media a few days back, several astute observations have been made that...
  • Channel 4's 'UK/US hospital mortality' story is based on Jarman's sandy foundations
    on Sep 12, 2013
    Last night I sat down to watch the Channel 4 news and was deeply upset by what was then to follow.  The 'news' exclusive on the 'increased mortality' in UK hospitals versus those in the US was presented as if the data to prove this theory was robust...
  • MAST cosying up with the chiroquacktic community
    on Aug 2, 2013
    It is interesting that MAST Medical are making such efforts to spread the results of their research within the chiropractic community.  The AECC (Anglo-European College of Chiropractic) strangely posted the above page commenting on MAST treatment an...
  • Formal complaint letter sent to European Spine Journal
    on Jul 31, 2013
      Dear Editor I am writing as regards the recent publications by Albert et al (1, 2) in the European Spine Journal (ESJ).   These are the undisputable facts of the case: -          Both Albert et al studies were submitted and all autho...
