NHS staff shortages costing £1.5bn in temporary staff

the nhs may be heading for a summer crisis!

According to recent research conduct by the Open University, NHS staff shortages are apparently costing the taxpayer around £1.5bn a year in temporary staff.

With the Royal College of Nursing saying there’s around 40,000 nursing vacancies, and widespread shortfalls in staff across the country, the cost of plugging the rota gaps is putting an even greater financial strain on the NHS funding situation. It’s thought that around half a billion pounds could be saved if these shortages were plugged with permanent staff instead of temps.

This all makes for worrying reading.

Stagecoach self-drive bus tests to go ahead

confusion over compensation for self-driving car accidents

Stagecoach self-drive bus tests are set to go ahead in depots as the company makes the move toward autonomous vehicles on UK roads in the near future.

With bus accidents already being a common type of personal injury claim that people need to make, our worries are that the Stagecoach self-drive vehicle move may pave the way for a bigger focus on technology that has already resulted in accidents and fatalities.

Clearly, self-drive technology isn’t ready, but the long-term worry is whether it will ever be truly ready, and what happens to those who fall victim to accidents where the creases of the system are being ironed out.

450 Gosport Hospital deaths caused by opioid policy

nhs care in crisis

According to the findings of an independent report, more than 450 Gosport Hospital deaths were caused by an opioid policy where patients received unnecessary medication.

Dr Jane Barton, a GP who worked at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital for more than 12 years, has been linked to the 456 deaths that took place in the 1990s as a result of life-shortening diamorphine; otherwise known as heroine.

Despite warnings from nurses working at the hospital, the dangerous opioid-use policy was reportedly in place for years. Consultants and other healthcare professionals are also being blamed for failing to speak out when there was clear evidence of malpractice; including pharmacists who would have known by the levels and nature of the drugs being used that something wasn’t right.
