Berwick review into patient safety


The Berwick review into patient safety has just been published, My Black Cat.

Huh. You’re already reading it! You are keen to see whether they are following your advice that you want made law.

“She thinks that all documents related to healthcare from whatever source, be it government, hospital, or any other body using public money, should have the first page after the title page completely dedicated to giving a summary of the full costs. It should also indicate those private companies, charities or individuals who benifit financially from the exercises. Included on this page should be an estimated cost for NHS staff time lost due to preparation and meetings. Any link on this page should not be a hide-and-seek exercise to find the full costs but rather one clear direct link for those who are interested in obtaining more detailed information on the full breakdown of the costs.”

I’ll bet you won’t find that degree of transparency in this document My Black Cat. However go through it with a fine toothcomb and, if it makes you feel better, have a fizzy fit if there is nothing there about the costs of this review to the taxpayer.
