The NHS is healed... apparently
31 Aug 2007 - JG
Good news at the NHS – they are set to have a whopping surplus of £1bn for the year. A turnaround from the £500m deficit last year. And how have they achieved this? Not through cutting costs in areas that have nothing to do with front line patient care – in fact completely the opposite. While Brown and the gang can say how financially efficient the NHS is, the fact is the cost savings have been made by cutting jobs, below inflation pay rises and cuts in services. Well done Gordon - giving with hand and taking even more with the other as usual.
