More Job Losses In Midlands

More hospital job losses deepen mood of crisis in NHS

The mood of crisis in the NHS deepened yesterday with the announcement of 720 further job losses at a hospital trust in the Midlands and the resignation of a trust chief executive in the north-west, with a £475,000 payoff.

Has Gordon spent too much on his "Miracle Economy" (boosting civil service jobs and government pensions) that there is nothing left for real and essential jobs?

Health trust announces 200 job cuts

(Filed: 07/04/2006)

Around 200 jobs will be lost at York Hospitals NHS Trust over the next 12 months as part of an attempt by health chiefs to save around £7 million, it has emerged.

Good thing Gordon has Bupa?

Here is the government's solution:


The Government has insisted that patient care remains of paramount importance in the NHS amid reports of secret plans to ration GP referrals and save money.
According to The Times, patients are being denied appointments with consultants in a systematic bid to ration care and balance the books.
It cited leaked documents showing that, despite the Government's Patient Choice agenda, barriers are being erected, limiting GPs' rights to refer people to consultants.
The documents reveal plans by health trusts across London to establish panels to "monitor" how many patients are referred to hospital by doctors, it reports.
Local trusts have been told they must cut their referral rates to those of the lowest 10% nationally - saving £25 million a year in the capital, it added. Consultant-to-consultant referrals are also being limited, denying many patients a second opinion.

Cut the quality of service! "Miraculous" cure to NHS problem found--sorted.
