£500M Bailout To Nhs As A&e On Brink Of Collapse

Recommended Posts


The NHS is to be given a £500m bailout to Accident & Emergency departments across England after warnings that the system is on the brink of collapse.

After chaos in hospitals across the country in spring, senior managers warned that the system could collapse within a year without major changes and extra money.

Senior doctors likened A&E units to “warzones” in May, with medics fighting a losing battle to cope with an increasing tide of patients, while the head of the NHS watchdog said the system had become “out of control”.

The Government is expected to announce a £500m rescue package, spread over two years, Health Service Journal has reported, with the money due to go to around 50 hospitals which struggled the most last winter.

Good to see that problems can only be fixed by senior managers if they are given more money. I wonder how many of the problems in A&E are as a result of senior management failure in the first place, luckily they know how to fix it and it's with more money.

At least the ConLibs aren't like Labour and just throw money at a problem to fix it.

Maybe if both New Labour and not the ConDems hadn't spent so much time and effort trying to privatise the NHS (on the quiet, knowing full well that it is very much against the wishes of the electorate), there would not be as much of a problem.
