Extra cash has no real impact on NHS say doctors

The
majority of doctors working in the NHS can see no improvements to the service
as a result of increased Government spending, according to the British Medical
Association.

A
survey of BMA members shows that 83 per cent of GPs and 81 per cent of consultants
think the extra cash from the Government has had no noticeable affect.

Ian
Bogle, chairman of the BMA said the investment wasn’t reaching frontline
healthcare because it was being taken up by national programmes with excessive
targets.

He
said the number of targets set by the Government was creating a culture of
mistrust between medical staff, managers and policy-makers.
