British Health Secretary Andrew Lansley attacks NHS managers for ‘letting patients die to save cash’

The Health Secretary has accused NHS managers of risking lives by making patients wait longer for treatment in a ‘cynical’ bid to save money.

Andrew Lansley spoke out after an official report found that surgery was being deliberately delayed so that patients will either go private or die before they reach the top of hospital waiting lists.

The claims are detailed in a report by the Co-operation and Competition Panel (CCP), an independent watchdog that advises the NHS.

It says unfair practices are ‘endemic’ in certain areas of England.
Mr Lansley said the report showed why the NHS needed to be reformed to put its huge budget into the hands of family doctors rather than bureaucrats.

‘This is exactly why we need to put patients’ interests first,’ he said. ‘Too many primary care trusts have been operating in a cynical environment where they can game the system – and in which political targets, particularly the maximum 18-week waiting time target, are used to actually delay treatment.

‘When GPs, specialist doctors and nurses are making the decisions, as they will under our plans, they will plan care on the basis of the clinical needs of patients and their right to access the best service, including the least possible waiting time.’

Patients in England have a legal right to start their hospital treatment within 18 weeks of referral by their GP.

But the CCP study says even though hospitals could see patients sooner, many are saving cash by introducing minimum waits of around 15 weeks for routine operations such as hip replacements and cataracts to cut the number treated this financial year. At least five million such operations are carried out each year in England.

The report follows a survey by GP magazine showing that two-thirds of primary care trusts (PCTs) in England are rationing treatments in the drive to reduce costs in the NHS by £20billion over the next four years.

Hip and knee replacements are being delayed until patients are in severe pain, while cataract operations are being withheld until sight problems ‘substantially’ affect a patient’s ability to work.

The CCP report says it was told by one PCT that it ‘sought to increase average waiting times from 13 to 16 weeks as a result of the PCT’s worsening financial position’.

It says some managers insisted that longer waiting times would lead to overall savings because ‘if patients wait longer then some will remove themselves from the list’. The panel said: ‘We understand that patients will remove themselves from the waiting list either by dying or by paying for their own treatment at private sector providers.’

The CCP report suggests that ploys to lengthen waiting lists will backfire: when treatment is delayed, more complex and expensive care can be required so money may not be saved in the long run.

It says: ‘At an individual level, making patients wait longer than necessary for treatment is likely to impose greater pain and inconvenience than is necessary.

‘The overall benefit to taxpayers is likely to be minimal.’

However, it says not all trusts impose minimum waiting times.

David Stout of the NHS Confederation, which represents trusts, reacted angrily to the report’s claims. He said it was a serious allegation that trust managers were expecting to make savings through the premature deaths of patients kept waiting.

‘Making claims without evidence that patients are dying as a result of longer waiting lists will cause unnecessary public anxiety and alarm,’ he said.

BILL GATES EXPOSING DEPOPULATION PLANS OF AGENDA 21

Posted in Global Warming, Health Control, socialism with tags , on June 16, 2011 by spikestl

Listen around 2 minutes, 33 seconds in the video clip below.

Bill Gates: “First we´ve got population. Now, the world today has 6.8 billion people. That´s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent, but there we see an increase of about 1.3.”

So is Mr. Gates talking about decrease the world population by 0.9 billion people by changing health care systems and deliver vaccines to people?

Does that make sense to you? What was his point? Did someone ask him what he meant by that? Who is the “we” he´s talking about? And who is among the 900 000 000 that “they” want reduce/remove/kill?

Akin Alert 10/08/2010

As I write today, I have several items to alert you to.

Obamacare

On October 1st, the first phase of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act went into effect. The law passed early this year is scheduled to be implemented over the next four years. Already, the first steps of implementation are not going so well.

For many employers, the cost of paying for the expanded plans mandated by the law is so great that they are considering eliminating health care coverage altogether – before the rest of the law goes into effect.

As a result, the New York Times reports that the Obama administration is granting dozens of waivers to big businesses and their insurers. The waivers allow these employers and insurers to continue providing limited-benefit plans that provide far less coverage than is mandated by the new law. A number of states have also asked for power to exempt some insurers, concerned that the law will be disruptive if insurers leave their state or stop offering certain types of coverage.

Yet, these waivers are selective. Not everyone has applied for them and not everyone gets them. The majority passed an economically devastating law and then temporarily waives it for some companies but not others. In effect, the healthcare law that was supposed to improve people’s lives is doing the opposite and the Administration’s way of dealing with these consequences is to selectively and temporarily waive the law.

I do not believe that this is what most people were thinking of when they called for healthcare reform. That is why I have called for repealing the current law and replacing it with meaningful reforms that drive coverage costs down, keep decisions with patients and expand access to health insurance.

Department of State Blocks Import of WWI Rifles

During the Korean War, American-made M1 rifles were sent to Korea to help our allies. Now that they are not of any military use, the South Korean government is ready to send nearly one million of these classic rifles back to the U.S., where they would be sold to law-abiding Americans. Earlier this year, the sale was approved by the U.S. government, but now the Department of State is saying these weapons may not be brought into the country because they “could potentially be exploited… for illicit purposes.”

I joined several of my colleagues in writing to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton–asking her to reverse her decision to block these antique firearms. These classic rifles should be able to be purchased from South Korea, imported to the U.S. and sold to anyone who can legally buy them.

Recovery Road Signs

House Republicans are trying to cut wasteful spending on road signs that announce stimulus projects. The savings on these signs could reach $192 million. If you think these signs waste taxpayer dollars, snap a picture of one and send the picture and location of the sign to Republicans on the House Government and Oversight Committee at stimulussigns@mail.house.gov.

As always, I hope you will take the time to contact me about these or any other issues of concern.

Sincerely,

W. Todd Akin
