, I do think that people have become more demanding with expectations at a level no publically financed service can hope to meet

There it is Tory girl has let the cat out of the bag.

Bang on Craig, its a service that can be used and abused, unfortunately just like most of the patients.

The scary thing is that they cut funding to child and adolescent funding which is preventative and reduces future costs.

I thought Thatchers lot were nasty and odious, but this lot are revoltingly puke inducing. They learned from the hatred of Thatcher to market themselves as nice and not nasty but they are even more ruthless and viciously vindictive than she was.

I know one chartered clinical psychologist who specialises in child and adolescent problems and the local trust imposed a limit of 6 sessions per patient as a cost cutting method. No consultation with the practitioners. The parents can't even commission him privately as the Trust have made it clear that one private appointment will exclude them entirely from future NHS treatment. That is just plainly offensive.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

That goes for any kind of public service. The problem with devolved service provision, be that in healthcare, education or, well, anything really, is that its standard can be hit and miss and is largely reliant upon the effectiveness and ability of the locally based authority responsible for it.

The Trusts may be responsible but the Health Minister is accountable. If the health of the nation is suffering because of incompetent Trusts then it's the Minister's fault if he refuses to manage it appropriately. By the mechanism of Collective Responsibility, it's the fault of the Coalition government as a whole.

She doesn't get that, it may take years to sink in.
