New leadership, same old problems - BBC News
new money won't be seen till next year, new winter crisis is coming for sure, and the wait lists will get even longer. - Health think tanks argue that the 3.4% is really only enough to cope with rising demand, never mind improving care.

Hospital sources point out that the new money won't come to the NHS until next year.

Nothing extra so far has been allocated for this winter and the intense pressure seen in the first months of this year is likely to be repeated.

There is every chance that waiting lists for routine surgery will get longer and accident and emergency performance won't get better.

Even with the £6bn cash boost next year, there are warnings that there won't be any rapid improvement. His instincts will be to tell the service to get on with job with the money it has. But that conviction will be tested in the depths of winter if hospitals are struggling to cope. [...] Also plays with part-privatisation of Elderly Care - asking people to take out a private insurance ... or lose their home ...

Hunt and Hammond 'gridlocked' over NHS funding rise | Society | The Guardian
Prof Anita Charlesworth, the Health Foundation’s chief economist, said: “Annual increases of 3.3% a year above inflation are the minimum required to prevent services from further decline. But stemming decline should not be the goal for the NHS in its 70th year.

“After eight years of austerity, people are waiting too long for care, the NHS doesn’t have enough clinical staff, public health budgets have been cut and just four in 10 people with a mental health problem get any help at all.

“If we are to make any inroads into these problems and secure the health service for the future, funding needs to increase by at least 4% a year.” //&! https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/15/the-guardian-view-on-the-nhs-cash-boost-pay-for-it-with-deficit-spending - The decision is not an act of compassion. It is not a birthday gift – although it might be sold as such because the NHS is 70 this July. It is not because there is a Brexit dividend – there isn’t. It is because the NHS is falling apart before people’s eyes.

Portsmouth hospital missed lung cancer cases - BBC News
A hospital failed to spot cases of lung cancer because it did not check patients' chest X-rays properly, the Care Quality Commission has found.
The health watchdog found that three patients at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth suffered "significant harm".
It emerged that junior doctors complained they had been asked to carry out specialist radiology work without the appropriate training.
The CQC has now launched a review of NHS radiology services in England.
All NHS bodies have been instructed to provide details about their backlogs, turnaround times, staffing and arrangements for routine reporting of images.

This structure, which is now widespread in the public sector, is convenient for ministers who want to avoid responsibility for day-to-day operations in public services.

The Treasury wants the NHS to show that it is “straining every sinew” before it receives any budget boost. He added: “I hope it [extra money] comes in this budget but at some point it needs to come. If it’s not this budget, it needs to be a budget in the future, hopefully before things pop.” The exact scope of what care the NHS can be expected to provide would need to be “reset” and some forms of care “deprioritised” unless its budget goes up beyond the small increases ministers have already planned, Mackey said

What will cost more than lifting the public sector pay cap? Not lifting it | Faiza Shaheen | Opinion | The Guardian
[finding efficiencies ... ] Let’s start with costs of recruitment and retention. This is a big one. Job advertising isn’t cheap and new recruits take time to settle in. Last year, a study found there had been a 61% rise in advertising spend since 2010 in secondary schools alone, costing £56m in 2015. Shortages in the health service mean NHS Trusts are paying millions every month to agency and bank nurses to ensure there are adequate levels of staff on wards.

Stress-related leave has also increased in the public sector as workers are understandably getting run down working in understaffed schools and hospital wards. This is just staff – what about the costs to our children of being in classes too big for them to maximise their learning or to a sick individual who has an operation delayed?

Now NHS cuts are stripping basic medicines from the poor | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
In some places patients can only get one cataract fixed: seeing with one eye is enough. [...] The NHS is ordered to cut an impossible £22bn by 2020 – but there is no national instruction as to what. Politically, it’s easier to leave local decision-makers to take the blame.

Driving students away from nursing is a spectacular act of political self-harm | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
With 40,000 nursing vacancies unfilled, the news that training applications are down by 23% is disastrous for the NHS [...] It reckons that in all over the past 10 years, 400,000 people who would have studied part-time in higher education have been deterred from doing so. [... can really re-pay the fees working for nurse salary + the jobs commitment ... + working 50% of their time training! ] [...] Janet Davies, head of the Royal College of Nursing, warns that nurses’ attitudes will alter once they are paying heftily for their training: “They will demand better clinical placements and their relationship with the NHS will change: carrying a heavy debt to get qualified, they will feel less obligation to work in the NHS.” The government promised that imposing fees on trainee nurses would see an increase of 10,000 new training places; none have been provided.

The truth about the Conservative manifesto? No new funding for schools and hospitals and more austerity | The Independent
But now we know: she couldn’t give an answer because there was actually no extra spending that needed to be paid for. The Institute for Fiscal Studies has calculated that the £8bn of NHS spending is merely a continuation of the path for health spending set out in the 2015 Spending Review and implicitly assumed to be extended in the 2017 March Budget. The IFS thinks the same thing is happening in schools spending, although with the added mischief that the £4bn figure is in cash terms, so unadjusted for expected inflation. //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-children-mental-health-services-cuts-or-closure-third-downsizing-survey-staff-conservatives-a7749616.html - Third of NHS children's mental health services 'face cuts or closure' Between 2010 and 2015, spending on children’s mental health services fell by nearly £50m – more than six per cent in real terms //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-world-ranking-uk-healthcare-worse-ireland-spain-slovenia-30th-lancet-a7744131.html - NHS is 'worse than healthcare in Ireland, Spain and Slovenia' in new global ranking UK scores total of 84.6 out of 100, placing it on an equal footing with Cyprus, Qatar, Malta, Portugal and the Czech Republic

NHS spending per person will be cut next year, ministers confirm | The Independent
The Government will cut the National Health Service’s budget per person in real terms next year, ministers have admitted in official figures for the first time.

Numbers released by ministers show NHS England will face a sharp reduction of 0.6 per cent in real terms of per head in the financial year 2018-19. 

The numbers corroborate claims by NHS chief Simon Stevens earlier this month that “in 2018-19, real-terms NHS spending per person in England is going to go down”.

[...] The Heart of England NHS Trust has paid out almost £18m in damages and legal costs to hundreds of his former patients. These cases did not form part of the criminal proceedings.

This undue rush could be fatal for NHS plans | Letters | Politics | The Guardian
But the breakneck speed at which organisations are being asked to submit their plans and consult with local groups – to meet this week’s arbitrary deadline – makes no sense at all, and could well be storing up problems for later. Some already suspect the plans might be cover for further cuts, closures and mergers. This must not be the case. Both the public and health staff need reassurance now.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39665223 - / The GP’s emails express alarm about the maternity unit’s procedures for communicating medical test results, accusing some departments of having a “fax and forget” attitude.

He said that without explanation or context, it was difficult for GPs to understand why particular tests had been ordered, how to interpret the results and how follow up appropriately.

The GP, who has expertise in patient safety, said: “At best these issues are an irritation; at worst, it’s dangerous. There seems to be an inability to change and to learn from mistakes. The safety culture isn’t responsive.

Public health cuts will lead to more sick people, report warns | Society | The Guardian
More people will become ill as a direct result of the government cutting spending on public health, which will put the NHS under further strain, a parliamentary report on Wednesday warns.

Peers on a House of Lords select committee urged citizens to do more to demonstrate personal responsibility – their “common duty” – to live healthily in order to help preserve the NHS as a tax-funded system that is free at the point of use. [...] The committee, which includes both Labour and Conservative former health ministers, recommends ministers launch a nationwide campaign to highlight the risks to health of being overweight. [...] An overhaul of the constitution is needed “as part of a renewed and sustained drive to improve health literacy and educate the public about their common duty to support the sustainability of the health service”, they add.

Even though EU staff numbers rose across the period analysed, experts fear the number of people leaving is the more significant trend.

[ outsourcing routine ops to private providers ie hips, bariatric, cancer, ] The Health Foundation report also found that £1 in every £8 of local commissioner's budgets in England is spent on care provided by non-NHS organisations.
Anita Charlesworth, director of research and economics at the Health Foundation, said: "Rising demand for emergency care meant that NHS providers haven't had the capacity to deliver planned care and patients had to be diverted outside the NHS.
"NHS hospitals were left squeezed by sharply rising drug and staff costs with little additional funding.
"The result was big deficits that had to be covered by raids on investment budgets."

Record numbers of EU nurses quit NHS | Society | The Guardian
The number of EU nationals registering as nurses in England has dropped by 92% since the Brexit referendum in June, and a record number are quitting the NHS, it can be revealed. [...] The haemorrhaging of foreign staff is being blamed by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on the failure of the government to provide EU nationals in the UK with any security about their future. May has claimed that Britain cannot act unilaterally to guarantee residency as it would weaken her hand in the coming article 50 negotiations over Brexit.

Janet Davies, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, said the government’s tactic was backfiring, and now threatened the sustainability of the health service.
