UK MPS SLAM GOVERNMENT OVER FAILURE TO PLAN FOR OR FUND 7 DAY NHS


From The Telegraph:

Government plans for a 7-day NHS are based on “flimsy notions” the Public Accounts Committee has said, amid warnings that policies have never been costed.

MPs called for an urgent review of clinical staffing levels, saying it “beggars belief” that “no coherent attempt” has been made to see how many staff are needed, to run services safely.

The British Medical Association and Government negotiators are locked in talks, in an attempt to break the deadlock over a new contract for junior doctors, which ministers have said will support a “proper seven day service in hospitals.”

But the PAC said they were “far from convinced” that there was funding in place to support such changes.
