2014 growth continues to show that the UK is open for business and the direction is positive.
The Commonwealth Games draw to a close with great results from the UK competitors. Glasgow has been presented to the world as a new and vibrant image. Well done Glasgow.
The bad news about the NHS has continued over recent weeks and months, with continual doom and gloom for the future from government, media and NHS management and now there is a shortage of Doctors.
For goodness sake its about time the Government and the management of the NHS got positive and started to sort things out.
If we can throw money at Crossrail, HS2, the Olympics and Commonwealth games surely we can sort out the NHS in a reasonable timeframe.
It was only a year ago when the reorganisation was said to put Doctors in charge of the NHS, now there are not enough Doctors to do all the work. Somebody is not thinking!
A&E is continues to be 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. At last that is on the agenda to provide 24/7 full hospital coverage.
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, but there are great things achieved within the NHS, so lets hear about them.
