UK Health system---Cameron can SPIN GOOD HOSPITAL JOKES


Health secretary Andrew Lansley said in April 2010 Labour would cut thousands of NHS jobs.
“They will cut the number of nurses, the number of doctors and the number of hospital beds. It does not get more frontline than that.”
David Cameron then famously claimed before the election that he would not damage NHS.
This is something he would never do....

Less than 10 months into the coalition government, the reality couldn’t be more different, with NHS cuts across the country including.

  • East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, which expects to shed 1,013 full-time equivalent staff from 2010-15, including almost 50 doctors and dental staff, and 270 nurses, midwives and health visitors.
  • Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which is cutting 682 full-time equivalent posts between 2010 and 2013. 110 posts have already gone.
  • University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust, who are currently forecasting a reduction of 1,349 full-time posts from 2011-15, which is 22.5 per cent of its entire staff.
  • Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who expect to cut 461 full-time posts by 2015 – a 16 per cent reduction, including a 12 per cent cut in nurses, midwives and health visitors.
  • Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, which is cutting 1,755 full-time posts in 2010-11 – nearly a nine per cent net reduction in one year, including 120 doctors and dentists, and 620 nurses.
  • Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, who plan to shed 1,115 full-time posts from 2011-14, mainly through natural turnover.
The total confirmed, planned and potential NHS staff cuts across the country currently stands at just over 53,150 posts – and that’s before a host of trusts are expected to announce staff cuts over the next four months, including all Wales’ health boards.

By the way if you have excess nurses and doctors in the UK, come on down to Australia we can't get enough, so if your wasting them in hospitals send them to us.
