"What this means to you, our patients, is that you may no longer be entitled to a hospital doctor's opinion even if you, and we, think it appropriate.

"As doctors and nurses we believe we are being pushed beyond the point of safety.
"In other words, we are being asked to take risks with your health in order to save money."
