Charlie from Casualty to replace Andrew Lansley as new Health Secretary
In response to the 98% no confidence vote by nurses working for the NHS under current Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, the coalition government have decided to replace him with Charlie Fairhead, the main staff nurse from the BBC television series ‘Casualty’.
‘We believe that Charlie can restore faith in the system – and ensure that the boy balancing on one leg up a tree holding a chainsaw will receive expedient and emotionally-engaging medical treatment,’ explained a government spokesman.
Derek Thompson, who plays Charlie, is keen to take up the role and added that ‘the plot seems pretty similar with both jobs, because every week it follows the same old storyline of an accident waiting to happen’.
