When you read the newspapers or listen to news broadcasts there appear to be very little GOOD UK NEWS circulated. There is just too much negative thinking or negative presentation of news.
At last there is some potentially good news on the economy, although that has been moderated by the retail sector results for the last month, well, I guess we cannot have everything!
The bad news about the NHS has continued over recent weeks and months, much of this “news” originates from reports of past events. Clearly there have been many serious failings which have resulted in tragedy for many families and improvements must be made.
A&E is criticised but in reality it is working harder than ever with large increases in patients of which 94% are treated within 4 hours.
Doctors surgeries are said to be the place to go but you cannot get an appointment within 7 days unless you are lucky so people go to A&E.
I have long believed that the NHS should operate on a fully staffed 24 hour basis utilising the capital equipment and buildings, diagnosing and treating patients quickly and thereby reducing the long-term total costs of poor health to the nation.
The latest “report” published about the direction for Accident and Emergency care has some very good ideas, however, to implement these ideas will mean more trained staff and equipment from an already stretched service.
The first priority in my opinion is to eliminate waste with the NHS to free up resources. When I talk about waste it is wasted activities, time, energy and materials.
I get the feeling that the NHS is under such continuous political change pressure that its objectives and direction is lost and management has lost control.
Are we all being softened up to accept that treatments will need to be paid for or that privatisation is the answer?
Did you know that private hospitals also get poor Care Quality Commission (CQC) audit results – not a lot of publicity with this news!
