“THE ECONOMIST” – MTAS, MMC, IT, POLYCLINICS
“The Economist” does not seem to think NHS changes bode well.
We missed this one, My Black Cat!
You’ll need to apply yourself more!
“But the fiasco that ensued in 2007 when the health department tried to change the way junior doctors applied for further training and progressed in their careers was in a class of its own. On May 8th, a committee of MPs published an inquest into the mess. Not just a routine post-mortem, the report is a cautionary tale for Labour’s other grandiose plans to reorganise the National Health Service.”
“The biggest unknown, though, is the review of the health service currently being carried out by Lord Darzi, a surgeon and junior minister. His report, due within weeks, may recommend a reorganisation of the entire NHS, with much care shifted from hospitals and GPs’ surgeries to “polyclinics”, a kind of half-way house between the two. Further disturbing autopsy reports may be on the way.”
TRYING TO MAKE A SNOWBALL THAT WON’T MELT IN HELL
So, there you have it, My Black Cat. We always thought bolstering the national and global economy is the reason why this government is hell-bent on turning sickness and health into a commodity.
And we always thought the way MMC/MTAS was transformed was closely related to this.
And we always thought it had a snowball’s chance in hell of working.
And now even “The Economist” seems to bracing itself for a festering post mortem.
So maybe we’re not so far off the mark after all.
Eh, My Black Cat?
