I'd have been happy to get sacked doc's email prayer.

NO, I don't like the overly-pious of any faith, but I can't understand why the colleagues of a Walsall Christian NHS Health Trust paediatrician felt his emailing them Biblical quotations was in any way "strange" or "distressing" as they claimed at industrial tribunals over the sacking of Dr David Drew.

He worked at a hospital described as multi-cultural and multi-faithed, so why the fury at his reference to Christianity? At worst, he was boring - but totally without malice. Were I one of his patients, I'd have been perfectly happy to get an emailed prayer from him. And just as happy to get a Muslim/Jewish/Hindu/Sikh prayer from medical staff.

If staff at this hot-bed of whingers have the time to nit-pick, I'd say it's ripe for a few redundancies.


Dr David Drew.
