This isn’t the start of an NHS crisis – it’s far worse | Jan Filochowski 21 Nov 10:45am This isn’t the start of an NHS crisis – it’s far worse | Jan Filochowski
The shortfalls are chronic, widespread and growing. I’ve turned failing health trusts around – I can see the service needs a modern-day Marshall planSaying the NHS was already in crisis, as I – and a few other Jeremiahs – did two years ago, meant going out on a limb. Today, hardly anyone says anything else, not least because virtually all our dire predictions have become realities. Even public officials responsible for running and inspecting the NHS, who couldn’t be seen for dust then (the heads of NHS England, NHS Improvement and the Care Quality Commission), are going public on the gravity of the situation and begging the chancellor to do something in this week’s budget. Indeed, how could anyone say things are OK when, in response to an increase in the past seven years of at most 15% in A&E attendances and admissions,

The rules on outsourced working are rigged. But today there’s a fightback | Aditya Chakrabortty 21 Nov 1:00am The rules on outsourced working are rigged. But today there’s a fightback | Aditya Chakrabortty
