  • can't see any comments on how opening up demand brings more patients out of the woodwork. their example of 22 week pathway streamlined to 6 weeks doesn't seem to take account of the fact that more patients' problems will resolve if they wait for longer (key NHS tactic) or that more patients will present if they think something can/will be done. "Demand" and "need" are not absolutes - they vary with availability, too.

    repeatedly over 30+ years have seen good ideas founder because they're insufficiently resourced to cope with the demand they unleash
