The proposed NHS changes are once again in the news today with all sides claiming and counter-claiming about different issues. The proposed changes are radical and far reaching, but don’t they need to be?
The NHS as it stands cannot sustain itself and is struggling to cope with the many important and differing demands placed on it…every sector and speciality will always believe that they need the most cash, or should suffer less cutbacks but it is an impossibility to expect that as a reality.
Clear comisisoning involves ensuring that services are delivered when, where and how they are needed and maybe GP’s and frontline staff are more suited to address these needs on a local level. That being said there is a whole host of Health Professionals who will also have the skills and knowledge to input into the changes and shouldn’t be ignored!!
