Training and recruitment of healthcare assistants in practices to be reviewed


We are going to cut 20 billion from the health budget. [with an ageing population and more morbidity] We want the finest compassionate care with no resources.It is all the doctors' or nurses' fault that this does not happen with no beds, no equipment and no personnel. Until we get basic arithmetic into the health service - how many patients per doctor/ nurse- we will spend millions on inquiries which would have been better spent on patient care. The NHS never had that - it relied on doctors doing 120 hours + a week to survive - and if anything went wrong - the doctors were lazy and did not work/ care enough.
