NHS 'reality check' for PM Boris Johnson - BBC News
The Royal College of Surgeons says nothing short of a long-term plan to increase the number of beds and staff and resources to run the wards will suffice.
Sally Gainsbury, of the Nuffield Trust, was the first analyst to highlight the funding mechanism. She argued that "to claim this as new money is a little like finally giving back the £10 you borrowed some time ago - and expecting to be applauded wildly".

Bed shortages lead to patient 'harm' in South Tees - BBC News
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which regulates and inspects health and social care services in England, visited the hospitals in January and February.

It said: "Harm had occurred to patients from three serious incidents because critical care beds were not available.

"Staff were not reporting staffing shortages and their impact, and infection control breaches were due to the service not being able to isolate patients with an infection."

The CQC said its inspectors "found a lack of assurance that nurse staffing levels were appropriate to safely care for patients".

It added: "Whilst leaders were aware of some of the risks, issues and challenges they were not always acted upon in an effective or timely manner."

Is the NHS's long-term plan workable? - BBC News
Bleak picture
Budgets for public health (including prevention) and training of nurses, doctors and other staff have not yet been set out and, if less generous than the NHS settlement, they could affect the ability of the service to deliver the long-term plan, in the view of the report authors.

And what of the short term? The watchdog paints a bleak picture.

The financial health of some trusts, it says, is getting worse.

(1160) The Christian volunteers doing police work in Reading: 'I'll ask God to intervene' - YouTube
As government cuts affect police numbers, Reading is feeling the pinch. With one officer claiming there are ‘very serious jobs, for instance stabbings, that we cannot get to’, Thames Valley police have turned to a group of Christian volunteers to help them police the town centre on Friday and Saturday nights. As well as keeping an eye out for trouble and known criminals, the Street Pastors care for people in no fit state to get home, and even run a taxi service for people too drunk for most drivers to accept

Focus on violent crime not misogyny, says police chief - BBC News
She added: "Neither investigating gender-based hate crime or investigating allegations against those who have died are necessarily bad things - I just argue that they cannot be priorities for a service that is over-stretched." [...] Security minister Ben Wallace said police should prioritise resources based on the level of harm caused by a crime, and forces were free to make these decisions as they saw fit.
