' ...and urges people not to forget that the primary duty of doctors is to treat patients ' -but as can be seen from the Kennedy report into the Trust perpetuated assaults by Patterson on his patients that this duty may not be primary where a Chief Executive is also a doctor-and since a corporatist infiltrated culture is constituted to primarily care(sic) for its own ends-with the patient-customer as the necessary means to it then there can be no surprise at the lethal import of Kennedy's statement in his Executive Summary that '... Mr Goldman, as Chief Executive, appeared to leave things to others while clearly being closely involved behind the scenes' -et al, ad naseum.
