I was amazed to
discover that the NHS gives preference to disabled job candidates. Surely this
is discrimination against the able bodied?
The NHS Appointments
Commission does boast that it operates a `guaranteed interview' scheme for
people who consider they are disabled. `Ordinarily,' says the Commission, `the
(short-listing) panel will select for interview only the four or five candidates
whom they all agree, on paper, best meet the requirements for the post.'
However, the NHS guarantees to interview anyone who is assessed on paper
by just one member of the panel to have the necessary qualities if they are
disabled. This is utterly outrageous.
