Welcome to my Blog.
Most of my entries will be about implementing the current reform agenda. I subscribe completely to the three overarching principles as if I may quote from part of a letter published in The Independent ‘The NHS was set up to be underpinned by the concept of social justice and long may that remain. Its underperformance however most underserves those it was set up to help and enable. Our poor clinical outcomes, though we have improved, disproportionally affects the poor. The frail elderly frequently get a bad service whether it was specifically at Mid Staffs hospital or generally as identified by the Ombudsman (and more recently the CQC). And when we perceive our needs as urgent despite valiant initiatives by successive governments, the NHS is often unresponsive’.
How is that social justice?
