Wow Martin that is a huge sum of money, just shows the importance placed by residents on their hospitals. Thank you for all the work you are doing to try and help protect our services which I know is a very steep uphill struggle. We do not get the required and expected support in this matter from the Conservative members of our Councils. Keep up your excellent work.
Health Minister Philip Dunne suggested that extra money for social care, mental health and A&E was enough.
“With record funding and more doctors and nurses, the NHS was recently judged the best healthcare system in the world, despite the pressures from increasing demand,” he said.
In its report, the CQC highlighted:
Staffing shortages with vacancy rates in the NHS rising by 16% over the last two years despite an increase in staff of 4%
Bed shortages in hospitals with occupancy levels being consistently above recommended levels since April 2012
Falling numbers of nursing homes beds – down by 4,000 in two years at a time when more are needed
Rising numbers of people not getting support for their social care needs with the numbers hitting 1.2m, up 18% in a year
Thanks for all your work Martin. I think my comment above shows that the Tories are in complete denial when the latest CQC report is considered.
