Nhs Function Outsourced To India

Recommended Posts

A small records function is to be done, not in the Midlands, but in India:

Not a great number of jobs, but if it is yours, it will hurt. It is the principle of this outsourcing and the wider implication of the Tory 'reforms' of the NHS which is important.

Jobs are fundamental to the wealth of the country and employment is important for health. Is this a real economy if fully costed?

I wonder too, whether the decision has been subject to the kind of 'impact assessment' which is the basis of the UNISON challenge to the Budget. The Courts could be full of cases to hinder the Government for years to come.

The report does not say how many managers earning over £30K will be included in the job losses. Any estimates?

The UNISON challenge is an affront to parliamentary democracy - the legislation that underpins it should be repealed toot sweet.

We need to get used to the idea that NHS employment must be culled.

While we all want the NHS to spend it's money the best way possible, it's stupid making people redundant and shipping the jobs to India if you then have to pay those people dole money and housing benefit.

You end up financially no better off as a whole, just one manager get to claim he's made a big saving.

No one looks at the big picture.

I do not understand your point. The legislation which requires Government and public bodies to pay due regard to the effect of their policies on the people who policy covers was a piece of law properly considered and passed by Parliament. UNISON and the EHRC are quite properly asking that the law is obeyed.

An affront to democracy is indeed the nature of Lansley's NHS 'reforms' which were not part of the Tory manifesto nor part of the Libcon agreement.

Yes, the NHS can be pruned, but why start at the bottom?

are you suggesting they should have done it the Labour way by stating in their manifesto specifically that they wouldnt reform it this way and then done it anyway

That's much cheaper than paying UK wages, promising a very healthy pension and having to pay for perpetually absent staff.

I bet the Indians won't be taking 2 weeks off ill each year.

The outsourcing and offshoring of jobs in the USA and UK will increase in order to cut costs.

So rather than creating more jobs we will be losing more and more existing jobs.

This is as a result of following neo liberal policies.

But people will only care when its their own job that goes.

I find out sourcing and nimbyism have a common theme. It’s okay till it affect us then it’s an affront.

In my area nearly all commercial sites have now been housed over, where will the families in these new homes find a livelihood ? The local planning authority have turned the area into a desert as far as local employment is concerned and moans constantly that there are too many cars per household clogging the roads.

The people at the bottom have least rights.

We all knew this was going to happen.

All the people actually doing the work are at the bottom and are mostly young people with no employment rights. All those further up the chain will have contracts that protect them from this, or at least ensure them a big payoff.

The only way this is going to change is if the Gov pulls out of all the EU treaties so they can rip up the contracts.

Can anyone see the tories and lib dems deciding to pull out of the EU any time soon?

What they are doing is funding jobs in other countries, and this does affect our current accounts, as now we need to find that extra export to cover the out goings, infact tax payers are funding jobs in other countries, i think thats sums up britain.

...if we are going to have functions and jobs within the NHS it is better they are based in this country on the basis they are a needed function and the country needs the jobs ...it is up to the public sector to ensure they are deployed both with efficiency and effectiveness within the country ....to import the cost is a waste of this country's resources....those responsible should be hung out high and dry ...they will not be able to turn the country round...... :rolleyes:

Indeed Mr Fudge. Everybody should read this.

Not quite perfect but as good a critique of free trade you will probably read.

Are you trolling? Or are you going to come up with some suggestions to reverse it yourself?

For one thing you have to reduce taxes to be economically as efficient as possible.

During this "shock" i advocate protectionism and trade with countries with similar govt / welfare/Gdp.

With the acknowledgement that the State is a drag on prosperity in the long run , etc,etc

It's not stupid if their dole plus the cost of the Indian is less than their wages.
