13 January 2020 (Monday) - Llittle Bit of Politics
Little bit of politics…. Or is it? For as long as I can remember I have been subject to management shake-ups and hospital mergers and the like. None have ever been done for any reason which has been tried and tested, or has any evidence for why it might be a good thing. Every time has been at the political whim of whichever politician is calling the shots at the time.
Now there is some evidence about hospital mergers… OK it is from America where the climate is different to here in the UK, but the evidence would suggest that mergers don’t necessarily improve anything.
I wonder if there is anything along these lines based on the UK experience…
