Capita GP support services improving, claims NHS England


Crapita has moved the goalposts so far that soon the previous well run service will be a distant memory. This is how you destroy the NHS piece by piece, and run down services. Soon people will forget it was not always private and be forced to swallow the service as it is too expensive to renationalise all the services being commissioned off to the lowest bidder, regardless of quality and ability to deliver. They are making a profit by running a poorly staffed and trained service, who are not performing the service they were paid to do. They should be fined and forced to hire more staff, and up-skill those who are present, and run at a loss, until the service runs smoothly. Then if performing well, can cream off the excess money as profit, once fit for purpose. Sadly they promised to do the task knowing full well they had no track record or ability to perform the contracted service, and primary care suffers. Where is the accountability? Who has been sacked for hiring these cowboys? Why hs the contract not been revoked and handed back to the NHS with a fine for poor performance? Where is JH these days? Laughing at the mess created as GPs and primary care suffer, and wilt.
