Hospitals to receive £1.8bn to implement 'seven-day' NHS

Comment

Dear All, Watch how secondary care operates. Money is tight. Standards fall, deficeits rise, they reach £2Bn. Mr Hunt then offers £1.8Bn if for them "agreeing plans", "reasonable timeframe", "further progress" and finally "setting out plans for achieving seven-day services by 2020". Its media froth for whats called a bailout. Last year A/E fell over and they got £500M. We need to learn from this. We have taken a 25% drop in funding and an at least 13% rise in work and we still buckle down and get ion with it. We need to learn the benefits of being seen to fail. Regards Paul C
