Report Lib Dems To Demand Emergency £2Bn Bailout For The Nhs - Reports in House prices and the economy Posted June 23, 2014 · Edited June 23, 2014 by Blue Peter The NHS should have said "Actually you could forgo the building costs and just give us the same amount of extra staff to work here." Somewhere there is a layer (or 4) of management in the NHS that needs removing. The NHS probably has far too few managers: The picture is complicated further by the number of qualified doctors and nurses in management positions or who have some management responsibility. However, the Kings Fund applied the ONS definitions of management to the NHS workforce and came to a figure of 4.8 percent. This is slightly higher than the official NHS number (just over 3 percent) but much lower than the ONS estimate of managers in the UK workforce – 15.4 percent. In other words, the NHS has a managerial workforce a mere one-third the size of that across the economy as a whole (ONS 2010). If anything, that points to the conclusion that the NHS, particularly given the complexity of health care, is under- rather than over-managed. The NHS in England is a £100 billion-a-year-plus business. It sees 1 million patients every 36 hours, spending nearly £2 billion a week. Aside from the banks, the only companies with a larger turnover in the FTSE 100 are the two global oil giants Shell and BP. If it were a country it would be around the thirtieth largest in the world. It might just as sensibly be asked, how can it be run effectively with only 45,000 managers. http://flipchartfairytales.wordpress.com/2014/01/15/is-the-nhs-really-over-managed/ '>Link Peter. http://flipchartfairytales.wordpress.com/2014/01/15/is-the-nhs-really-over-managed/ http://flipchartfairytales.wordpress.com/2014/01/15/is-the-nhs-really-over-managed/' rel="external nofollow"> Who changed the expletive delted editor?
