MPIG-reliant practices have 'no guarantee' of protection, says NHS England

Comment

The report from Institute of Fiscal Studies ,IFS, summarised it all: After adjusting for the fact that the NHS will be looking after an increasing number of older patients in the years ahead, the IFS has predicted that spending per person will fall by 9% between 2010-11 and 2018-19.(NBC news ) The intention of the government is crystal clear-tax further down(forget about Daniel Alexander's dead body), much less public spending and benefit, more reliance on private /commercial sectors. The 'efficiency' saving(nobody is using the term of Nicholson's challenge as the name lost credibility after Francis report anyway) will go deeper and deeper . The old question remains , ' where has the save money gone?' 500 million given here and there as a one off payment is just disguising the underlying tyranny- too little , too late
