Medicine degrees offered through clearing 'for first time ever'


robin I agree with all your points but these are details compared to the fact that a genuine nhs(before the interference by politicians) IS the most efficient system--far more than insurance based or private systems. for example the internal market pf1 private outsourcing waste 15 to 20 billion a year not going into patient acre and independent studies show the benefits of the internal market are minimal..and that's not even accouting for the fragmentation. what I mean is to return to the clinically led nhs before the insane damage done by ideologues/'management'religion fanatics thatcher/major/blair..(ably helped to damage the nhs by our present CEO)/brown/Cameron..all the reforms are actually catastrophic deforms . I think we are talking past each other. the problems you state are due to the internal market with nhs bodies dumping work onto each other--us..because they have a financial incentive to do so another reason why the internal market must be liquidated and I support the nhs reinstatement bill what we have now is not the nhs--far from it is easy for people to confuse the present politically inspired mess from the real nhs concept..which was my drift best wishes anon.
