Labours Plan To Reduce Targets; Increase Rights.

Recommended Posts

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8122798.stm

It seems that if you can't deliver the reality (say, child poverty targets) then legislate a right and we're off. Now we're to get a right to a particular element of cancer treatment.

Patients in England suspected of suffering from cancer will have the right to see a specialist within two weeks, ministers are due to announce.

Primary care trusts would be required to pay for private consultations if NHS hospitals cannot meet the timescale.

There could be financial penalties for failure to keep to the two-week limit which at the moment is only a target.

Now obviously you know this means that the declaration of being suspected of having cancer will be witheld so that the two week "right" will be achieved; the same way you can't make a doctors appointment.. er.. until they're ready to see you (so the appointment times are low) and the legendary removal of trolley wheels to reclassify as beds.

Day after day, announcement after announcement, they do exactly the same thing in exactly the same way with exactly the same farcical results. Please, nobody is listening any more Gordon.

Just vain attempts at electioneering by the polity.

The plan is for 50% less targets in 2010, rising to 70% less targets the year after.

Setting targets to reduce targets? awesome idea.

Those who voted labour at the last election must be getting more and more embarassed by the day.

Indeed; it's like having meetings to discuss, well meetings!

How would this work?

All hospital beds I have seen have had wheels.

Does this mean that they were not actually beds?
