Another NHS Failure

We live in a money-mad society. If you have enough money you will be provided with the best possible food, clothing and shelter. This of course also applies to health care as a recent survey of GP surgeries revealed. 'Health watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has ranked almost every GP surgery in England in terms of risk of providing poor care. The majority are of low concern, but 11% have been rated in the highest risk band by CQC. Many of the elevated-risk practices had possible issues with appointments, mental health plans, and cervical cancer screening.' (BBC News, 18 November)   RD
