Headline

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

Comment

What a load of rubbish. "Strict criteria?" Read them carefully. Nothing strict here. All the acute trusts have to do is formulate plans and move in the right direction. Truth is, as previous contributors have stated, when acute trusts fail they are rewarded and bailed out, whilst general practice has to fight for every penny. Anyway, this money will not even cover deficits over the next few years. By 2020 Hunt will have long departed his job and will not have to answer for the fact that his 7 day plan will have either failed or cost billions more than was envisaged and be an unnecessary luxury which threatens the entire NHS. The 7 day plan is simply a distraction to make the public think the goverment is nurturing and improving the NHS when its real agenda is to dismantle it.
