This article explores how envy may exist between staff and patients within any areas of General and Psychiatric Health Care, the more so as there is little or no hope of this being thought about and owned by the participants. This dynamic, again the more so as it is unconscious, may massively interfere with ‘the work’, with many destructive ramifications. Although the particular area of Health Care delivery reported on here happens to be Nephrology, it is suggested that the issues raised are relevant to all services in which ill patients are looked after by staff who are dedicated to their care.
