Description

Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/1xfhtCk Dr. Mark Porter, chairman of the British Medical Association, talks to Afshin Rattansi about the NHS. He thinks that, looking at the figures, the NHS could be running into crisis. Emergency departments are struggling to process patients fast enough, and due to conditions they struggle to find people who want to work in them. He thinks that the system is failing, with doctors being expected to improve results while budgets fall. The problem with any claimed efficiency savings is that they come from two places – pushing departments into deficit, or cutting staff pay. And the unions representing medical staff are taking unprecedented ballots in what could see a move towards industrial action.
