NHS under threat from ‘more for less’

Jeremy Hunt is in trouble. “This is his IDS moment”, says Chris Ham of the King’s Fund in a Guardian Online article today. “Hunt now faces unpalatable choices about the direction of health policy, akin to the dilemmas that led Iain Duncan Smith to resign as Work and Pensions Secretary. Just as Duncan Smith felt his mission to reform welfare was undermined by budget cuts, so Hunt’s ambition to improve quality of care is at risk from financial constraints.”

Protesting about the cuts

I am attending an occasionally held NPA and NPA Insurance joint meeting today to align the strategies of both. NPAI is a wholly owned subsidiary of the NPA and it is important that the organisations work together in the best interests of members. Such meetings allow the parent company to understand the regulatory challenges of operating an insurance company and NPAI to understand the challenges faced by community pharmacists in their day-to-day practice. Satisfaction levels are high and the dedicated team for claims handling consistently receives excellent feedback.

Dealing with the DH bombshell

The pre-Christmas bombshell announcement on cuts to the community pharmacy budget has been exercising minds locally and nationally. Today, I am at the House of Commons making a presentation sponsored by Kate Hoey MP. Other than MPs, the invited audience includes GPs, nurses, hospital consultants, local authority councillors, CCG chairs, people from Healthwatch, social services, patient groups and NHS England and, of course, pharmacists, including NPA and Pharmacy London chairs and the RPS president – a really eclectic group! Unfortunately, a consultant from St Thomas’ cannot come due to the junior hospital doctors’ strike, which is also today.
