Did you know that the last government provided £3.8bn in transformation funding for the NHS. That's nearly 4 of those super-sized hospitals they could have funded outright. Again, thankfully they declined to do this and are giving all that money to people to transform butterfly-like from underperforming organisations to these wonderful modern healthcare beasties, no need to show much improvement though, just transform somehow.
Ahem... just remembered that this is uninteresting trivial facts and was about to delete my posts but then realised that to politicians this really is uninteresting and trivial.
I have just started working on a new project that the company I work for are doing for NHS Scotland.
The striking thing about the Wail article was the implication that spending more per capita on things like the NHS was somehow a bad thing!
