Are you demoralised by the five years of scandalous human misery and deaths caused by the cuts and chaos at Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT)?
Are you worried by the impending and atrocious inspection report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC)?
Allow Antek Lejk, the Chief Executive of NSFT who took his job knowing patients and carers found him unappointable, to lighten the mood as we enter the festive season with his unique Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame: NSFT Edition™.
Print out the Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Cards™ and the Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Strategy Documents™.
Game of Shame rules:
- This is a game for two to six players plus a narrator;
- Select a narrator;
- The narrator shuffles the pages of Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Strategy Documents™ and they are placed face down;
- The narrator shuffles the Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Cards™ and they are placed face down;
- Each player selects an Antek Lejk Game of Shame Card™;
- The narrator selects each page in turn from the top of the Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Strategy Documents™ pile and reads it aloud;
- The speed at which the document is read varies the difficulty of the game;
- Reading slowly can make this game more suitable for people from a NHS commissioning or communications team background;
- NHS middle managers have not been considered as suitable players as they would make Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame: NSFT Edition™ too slow and ruin the fun by constantly exclaiming ‘this is not amusing’;
- As each page is read, players mark off any meaningless buzzword printed on their individual Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Card™;
- The winner is the first person to mark off all of the words on their Antek Lejk’s Game of Shame Card™;
- The winner claims their prize by shouting from a choice of the following phrases: ‘NHS Cornwall’, ‘Dis the CQC’, ‘Service user and carer reject’, ‘Doing this just for the money’, ‘We thought this is rubbish’, ‘Even Michael Scott was better’ or simply ‘Doing an Antek’.
Potential prizes include

- Trousering a £35,000 annual pay rise from NHS coffers
- An appearance before a House of Commons Select Committee
