Medic resigns saying claims NHS is overrun is ‘all lies’ and she had ‘no work for 3 weeks’ at the peak of the pandemic
NHS worker in Shelley Tasker, 43, publicly resigned on the streets of Truro in Cornwall.
- The healthcare assistant claimed that she worked at the height of the pandemic and “had no work for three weeks because there were no patients”.
- Tasker explains that she resigns despite the love she holds for her job.
- Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust spokesperson explained that Tasker is ‘spreading lies’.
Shelley Tasker resigned in opposition to the coronavirus lockdown.
According to the MIRROR, the 43-year-old woman is a ‘part-time photographer and a former healthcare assistant at Treliske hospital, part of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust’. A video of Tasker publicly resigning on the streets of Truro in Cornwall comes after England announced a second lockdown. This lockdown will last for a minimum of four weeks with the hopes that it will help decrease the number of COVID cases.
The woman announced that she can no longer lie to the people.
In the video, she is heard saying: “Today, I’m publicly resigning. I am wearing this uniform sadly for the last time. I loved my job. I absolutely loved it. Those of you who have been following what’s going on, we’ve done tasks, we’ve organised protests, I’ve had a lot of flack. I’m at a point now, it’s all coming back to me. I’ve had an email from work last night asking me what’s going on, people are reporting me and unfortunately, I can’t lie anymore.”
Tasker claimed that at the height of the pandemic, she had no work because there were no patients.
Speaking to a large crowd, the woman said: “I can tell you that on Friday, in Treliske, there were three people in with Covid. No extra deaths, three – and that covers Treliske, West Cornwall and Hayle hospital. The total deaths from these 3 hospitals in 7 months is 76 people. That’s about 10 people a month over the last seven months … and we have locked down”. Tasker now urges other NHS workers, doctors, and nurses to stand up, come forward and speak out about the lies which the government is telling people.
A spokesperson for Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust denied Tasker’s claims, speaking to MailOnline:
We’re in the middle of a once in a lifetime pandemic and it is unacceptable for anybody to spread lies which could be harmful to people’s health, let alone from somebody in a respected position. The public’s incredible support for the NHS played a major role in helping us handle the first wave of coronavirus, and as we face a potential second wave, it is absolutely vital our staff and the public follow the latest public health guidance to help keep us all safe.
