Headline

Mr Johnson, the workforce crisis is worse than any financial calamity

Comment

"that goodwill is dangerously close to running dry" I think is underestimating the disinvestment that disenfranchised NHS workers now feel towards the NHS. The working capacity of the NHS as an institution and individuals within it it is like a Frank-Starling curve - the more pressure is put on, the harder everyone works to plug the gaps... however I think we have truly tipped over into "decompensated NHS failure" and little short of a massive injection of funding, manpower resource and organisational overhaul to remove the inane bureaucratic chains which prevent individuals and organisations from getting on with core work will have any effect on resuscitating this frail and dying edifice.
