Overseas nurses denied NHS jobs - BBC News
[ IDEOLOGICAL CAREER POLITICIANS MOVE: cut training budget (bursaries) in 2010 (together with lib dems), and 5 years later turn it into student loan public, with that move we create more places to learn. lol! conning way. yeah but also move the item off the public's balance sheet. ] [ http://bit.ly/1LPhnMa http://bit.ly/1mZySRj http://bit.ly/1TesYGF http://ind.pn/1JNyGPn http://bit.ly/1WcXHFL ] >> A Department of Health spokesman said: "The MAC is currently reviewing the shortage occupation list. Staffing is a priority and there are already more than 8,500 more nurses on our wards since 2010 and 50,000 more nurses in training. "We want more home-grown staff in the NHS and our recent changes to student funding will create up to 10,000 more nursing, midwifery and allied health professional training places by 2020."

'Dark ages' warning issued over freedom of information changes | Media | The Guardian
Exempting advice given to ministers from freedom of information requests risks returning the UK to the “dark ages” of “private government”, the information commissioner has warned. Christopher Graham told a review into the legislation that changes to FoI being considered by a government commission could lead to a blanket ban on all advice being made available to the public. //&! bit.ly/1N3fuLD //&! Freedom of Information Act misused by media to create stories, says Grayling Leader of the Commons Chris Grayling criticises use of FoI requests as a ‘research tool’ to ‘generate’ stories - bit.ly/1GOG1gj

The Guardian view on welfare reform: death and the benefit system | Editorial | Comment is free | The Guardian
[I]f he wants to get more sick people working he must take the time to get the policy right. It is a matter of life and death [...] Instead, after fighting tooth and nail against the releasing the information at all, the numbers came in such sparse form that they were hard to make sense of. Whitehall always likes to leave awkward MPs and FoI requesters wishing they’d asked a slightly different question. [...] Treading carefully in welfare reform really can be a matter of life and death. Sadly, careful treading isn’t the Duncan Smith way. Against expert advice, he rammed through the WCA – which he now suggests needs another overhaul – at breakneck speed. He lost control of a caseload that had previously been falling, and his universal credit is so far off-track that it will not be completed during this parliament. // &! bit.ly/1EpRXDQ &! bit.ly/1Ik0ovC &! bit.ly/1fJlfSe &! bit.ly/1WOV3ra

Thousands have died soon after being found ‘fit to work’ by the DWP’s benefit tests - UK Politics - UK - The Independent
The Department for Work and Pensions battled for months not to release the numbers, with its chief minister Iain Duncan Smith at one point telling Parliament they did not exist. [...] "What lies behind these figures is a cruel climate generated by some politicians and sections of the media that seeks to demonise those in need and undermine public confidence in our welfare state," [...] In 2012 a government advisor appointed to review the Government’s Work Capability Assessment said the tests were causing suffering by sending sick people back to work inappropriately. // [ privatisation and profiteering ] // Mr Duncan Smith arguing that the previous cash level created a “perverse incentive”. // &! bit.ly/1Ik0ovC &! bit.ly/1fJlfSe - More than 80 people a month are now dying after being declared ‘fit for work’. The safety net that used to be there for the most vulnerable is being torn to shreds [...] stopped using the term social security and replaced it with “welfare”.
