Futures and consequences

19 May

One idea from the Tories during the recent general election was a 24/7/365 health service. This sounds marvellous. Bring it on!
Oh, but the new arrangements require the agreement of the doctors and nurses and auxiliary staff, who were not consulted. It seems that in order to implement this new policy this already overworked and largely under-remunerated part of society will be required to agree to open-ended changes to their terms of employment. For some reason, these changes are unwelcome. Having a family and social life is incompatible with the wonderful reform.
And so the prospect of public service strikes looms like a hungry vulture over the caring professions. Who could have predicted that?
