Coroner orders NHS to overhaul GP asthma care after child's death


If we had more doctors and more money spent on health care generally we could prevent more deaths. What does this coroner believe we should stop doing to enable perfect care on this one particular disease group? Presumably she has costed the number of hours required to bring this country up to the required standard? This isn't complacency it is a simple request to know whether I divert my highly skilled disease prevention nurses from other tasks or whether I will receive extra funding to pay them for more hours?? Which is it to be Dr Ratcliffe?
