According to NHS Providers, a group that represents 97% of hospital, mental health, community and ambulance service trusts in England, the NHS needs an immediate cash injection of between £200 and £350 million to manage the risk associated with a projected “bad” winter in England. For some encouraging reading, see their Winter Warning publication. So, winter coming, there’s a physician and nurse shortage, A&E (think emergency room for our American readers) wait times are up, and previous programs have not produced enough efficiencies. Any good news? Yes. Apparently planning and support is “considerably more developed” than last year. Great, there’s a plan. Here’s hoping the winter is not too bad. Keep calm and show me the money.
