My wife was recently denied, admittedly new, potentially life saving drugs.
We were told there was no money.
I was by someone that they were introducing a IT system.
This annoyed me so I decided to investigate.
Heres what I found:
NHS Highland are installing a new IT system costing £3 million +
NHS Highland are sending patients to private hospitals costing £1 million +
NHS Highland are redeveloping Raigmore costing £milllions (20+ over 5 years)
NHS Highland sent Managers to America to learn how a private healthcare company works. A for profit company. A company run by insurers. To learn a process called LEAN.
NHS Highland has been asked to make savings of 2 million + this year.
NHS Highland need to go back to school. If 4 million has gone out. How do you expect to save 2 million?
Im no Alan Sugar but in my business if I invest I don't expect to save straight away.
I think NHS Highland needs to get a grip. get real. get the drugs their patients need.
