Do you ever wonder how the NHS manages to spend so much money?

For years companies and government departments have shunned training their own people, it fell out of fashion from the mid 1980s with the rise of accountancy software, desktop PCs and management pricks who pushed the line that they could save money by shutting down training centres etc. From Engineering/Transport/Power/Utilities through to the Public sector it was all the rage to improve 'the bottom line'.

They reaped a huge skills gap, the rise of agency supplied workers and now the mass importation of 'skills' that other countries have trained, most often very poorly.

This nations biggest enemy is its own government and toads with spreadsheets.

Plus foreign trained health and other skilled workers should stay in their home nations to cure their own countries ills rather than draining them of skills and intelligence.

Any kind of decent skills training and employer responsibility went out the window and was finished by the mid 90s. NVQs were introduced in the late 80s and as everyone knows, stands for not very qualified. The race to the bottom in vocational education was finished a long time ago. Sad given that the apprenticeship system predates Elizabeth I

It's a good thing that we haven't gone and done something monumentally stupid like place a hard limit on the number of medical training places.

And then charge those that do get a place 9k a year. Madness, just fecking madness. How many places would the 100m they are planning to give to employment agencies fund?  (Come on, I know there are a good few mathematicians on here).

I'm an NHS employee in a non clinical but important 'paper shuffling'role. My Head of Dept is finding it hard to get permission from her superiors to replace permanent employees yet we have to rely on some temp staff to keep things ticking over. :(

I like having a few temps, we have a couple of semi-retired people who we can call in when busy. It's not contractual and they can always say no but it seems an ideal resource: very experienced, keen, happy with whatever work they're given.

I kept someone on at my last place after they retired at 65, few days a month at a busy time, worked brilliantly.  The HR guy with the MBA was all huffy about it because it slewed his precious stats.

      A female healthcare worker has been arrested on suspicion of murdering eight babies and attempting to murder six others at a Cheshire hospital.
      Detectives are investigating the deaths of 17 youngsters at the Countess of Chester Hospital in 2015 and 2016, and 15 other 'non-fatal' cases.
      Police today confirmed they had arrested a woman who they described only as 'a healthcare professional' this morning. They have not said whether the woman is a nurse, doctor or worked in another role.
      She is being questioned of suspicion of having murdered eight of the children and attempting to murder six others.

      Sad as it is for the kid, the problem here is that black and brown people struggle to get enough Vit D from the UK's weedy sunlight.
      Thats the fucking story.
      The reason why the number of ricket cases is rising - at a fare clip - is due to the ever increasing number of black/brown people living in the UK.
      Me, personally, Id not live South of Barcelona/Milan - just too hot for me; too pale.
      There's a strong case to be made for really black people people not living North of those lines.
      Im not all NF/Enoch but white people are designed to live in the top bit of the world. Black people in the centre, Brown people somewhere between. It takes a good few generations to adapt to the different sunlight.

      thoughts on charging for common drugs. What's not to like?
      apparently it will hit the poor disproportionately.  How?  They will pay the same as the chump taxpayers
