Once more there has been a report on the endless debate of the NHS, the changes that were made, the pro’s and con’s, the excuses and the judgement’s. But haven’t we all just had enough? Isn’t time we stop staring at the evident statement that we need a resolution, and instead actually put one in place.

What we are more interested in is the affects it has had on the GP’s. Labours argument always spoke on how they wanted GP’s to have more input over how the budge was spent. But it seems to us they got forgotten about. GP’s are the ones who deal with the patients, not those in parliament.

Secondly, and most importantly, patient care has been neglected. We are all familiar now to the stress of patient waiting time, overcrowded A&E, and patients struggling to see their GP. Everyone has collectively managed to recognize how the changes completely forgot about the sole purpose of the NHS; caring for patients. Both GP, nurses and patients have all suffered due to the changes made, and those in government have spent the last couple years debating about which one of them is right and wrong.

It’s time the focus returned and remain where it initially needed to be. With elections around the corner the political parties are being loud and clear on their intentions to help the NHS, but not many are making strict promises on how they intend to do so.

Dr Mark Porter, head of the British Medical Association (BMA) said the changes were “opposed by patients, the public and NHS staff, but politicians pushed through the changes regardless…The damage done to the NHS has been profound and intense, but what is needed now is an honest and frank debate over how we can put right what has gone wrong without the need for another unnecessary and costly top-down reorganisation.” [1]

Dr Porter is correct in what needs to be done for the NHS, but we care about what the staff and patients on the working floor want to be achieved from here on out? Quite clearly we can see we need to listen to the voices of GP’s and Nurse’s who work within the environment, who know what would make the process easier. So please, share with us, what is it you believe needs to be done?

Please comment your thoughts, or email our marketing team to discuss how this has impacted you.
