Are you sure you're on the right thread, George?
And ... "disorganised bunch"? How about "talented and diverse"? Mongrels are always stronger than thoroughbreds! What do you want, George:- a load of identical drones
... and Trades Union militancy?
I don't know about you, but the best biomeds I have come across have always been independent spirits (they - we - had
to be that way - resourceful, and all the rest - back in those days). Free thinkers. OK ... awkward (from the point of view of the suits
that is)! LOL.
For what it's worth, I hope I can claim that I've "done my bit" to get biomed on an even keel. Not only via
my evangelizing on this forum, but in a much more practical sense during my many years of not winning popularity contests in hospitals (and yes, meetings as well)! Ha, ha.
All I can offer now is mentoring (younger) techs - whether they appreciate the value of that, or not - and a few "words to the wise" ... such as:-
"If we each do a little, we can all do a lot"!
