, used to display detailed tables on its website but these are no longer available." Just why is that?


Probably because it's perfectly legal in accordance with the letter of the law.


Ah, oh well the law's the law after all, so we don't need to listen to Del-boy when he promised more transparency then......

Another damning report

"Whistleblower and consultant Anil Desai said up to 50 people may have died.

His claims were dismissed but the official report, leaked to the MoS, supported him."

Nice to see a whistleblower vindicated.

Hmmn, with all that money being poured into the NHS, where is it going?

Certainly not into here.....

Police concerns over ambulance delays

"The police are there to do a totally different job. In the East of England Ambulance Service there just aren't enough staff to keep up with the demand that's there."

From such a well-oiled machine known as Government service, it seems the cock-ups continue.....

NHS England's Public Information Service a total shambles

"Dr Geraint Lewis, NHS England's chief data officer, told the BBC: "We are hearing that certain patients have not received the leaflets, so we're working very closely with the Royal Mail.""

More than likely not paying them enough now the mail is privatised!

Last 4 consecutive days received junk mail from British Gas. The difference?

None No wonder the bills are high!

Anyone from the UK got their leaflet yet?

Not impressed with the treasury, again.

Papworth hospital's future in doubt after Treasury intervention

The future of the world-renowned Papworth hospital is in doubt because it is being prevented by the Treasury from moving to a new centre of medical excellence in Cambridge.

Instead of consolidating its reputation as a pioneering heart and lung hospital at the forefront of medical innovation, Papworth may instead be forced into a shotgun partnership with the NHS's most loss-making foundation trust.


I should think so too.
'Pick up the reins, stand to post, and sort this out': Father's tweet makes NHS director order fast-track inquiry into child deaths at Bristol hospital

England's top doctor has ordered an independent review of a hospital where child heart patients died, after he dramatically circumvented NHS complaints procedures to personally meet bereaved families.
Sir Bruce Keogh, the medical director of NHS England, said the independent review should take place after he had a "powerful" meeting with 10 families who said their children were the victims of poor care at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, part of the University Hospitals Bristol (UHB) NHS Foundation Trust.

Papworth is a report in the Guardian read by just 2% of the population Oh dear, has your surfing let you down? It appeared elsewhere as well. I'll let you search for them as you love surfing and perusing the wiki

Instead of consolidating its reputation as a pioneering heart and lung hospital at the forefront of medical innovation, Papworth may instead be forced into a shotgun partnership with the NHS's most loss-making foundation trust. Stephen Bridge, chief executive of Papworth – scene of the UK's first heart transplant and a host of other medical breakthroughs – told the Guardian that his hospital may become a casualty of "NHS politics" and is "exasperated" at the Treasury's eleventh-hour intervention. "We could be forever caught up in NHS politics, get bogged down and be left with an uncertain future," said Bridge.

The specialist heart and lung hospital may now have to instead move some or all of its services, including cardiac surgery and world-leading transplantation, to Peterborough as part of a rescue plan for Peterborough city hospital. Peterborough and Stamford NHS Foundation Trust, which runs it, is losing millions of pounds a month, has received £44m in emergency funding from the DH to continue operating and was last year declared "not financially sustainable" by the NHS's economic regulator Monitor.

This is all political posturing ahead of proposed changes.


I would check facts before posting arrogance like that. There were two perfectly good hospitals with an excellent reputation until political posturing got in the way. "We must enter the 21st century" and look what that brought in!

As for Papworth, that has been causing issues for well over a decade as it sits on prime development land.

The questions to be asked here are: -

"Just who will benefit from the transfer to Peterborough?"
"Who has got their grubby little hands stuck where they shouldn't?"

I would recommend that you stop using flowery tabloid language.So we listen to Gauleiter Taffy instead?

Really? Any evidence?Drive up in your beemer and see for yourself


The questions to be asked here are: -

Not "The" questions "your" questions.No, questions that have already been posed by many within Cambridgeshire, so get your head out from under that London smog and wake up to the fact that the UK does not consist of London only

"Just who will benefit from the transfer to Peterborough?"
"Who has got their grubby little hands stuck where they shouldn't?"

Are you making public allegations of corruption and financial irregularities? Because if you are, I would recommend you pass that information on to the police. I can do it for you if you wish.
Be my guest, but you will be wasting your time as it will only be reported in the "tabloids" so you won't believe it is happening anyway

Sad state of affairs

The pressures are less in Australia and the emphasis primarily for my working day is on patient care."

There are fewer of the targets and demands from managers that make working in the NHS "just too hard", he says."

"I used to love working in A&E but it got to the stage where I just didn't enjoy my job and I didn't want to spend another 20 years working as an A&E consultant.

"I don't think you get an awful lot of respect from the rest of the hospital. To some extent, A&E is now seen as everyone's dumping ground."

Another reason why bureaucrats should be kicked out of hospitals.....

Bureaucrats withheld information

"A hospital where a girl bled to death has revealed a catalogue of errors, weeks after withholding details for fear of "putting staff under more stress"."

More than likely a case of CYA than the fear of upsetting others!

In the US of A Obamacare is run by commercial insurance companies so there is no single payer central system. The Veterans Administration on the other does have a central computer system; it is the only thing that truly works. One can reorder prescriptions, make appointments and best of all pull up one's entire medical history along with all health care provider notes. The staff hate it because it shows how incompetent they truly are.

What is ironic, is that with all its imperfections, the NHS is still the best health service in the world. Makes you wonder what goes on in other countries doesn't it?

I miss the NHS. The Canadian healthcare isn't bad, but the NHS really is the best. I hope you are fighting to stop them destroying it.

Well at the moment I am gobsmacked that with all the problems with the NHS all the parties are just paying lip service to those issues with the exception of one dedicated MP & god forbid, he's a Lib-Dem.
