Another 1,000 jobs to go in NHS
What I found intersting yesterday was confirmation (of course I cannot give sources) that there is some effort placed into news management from local trust by central NHS adminstration. This is something I expected, but the real question then is how bad would things be found to be if the news management stopped.
These job losses are in Yorkshire.
I am also a little confused on Herceptin. We are told it will cost about £100 Million nationally, but the local estimates for half of Birmingham are £6 Million.
