Health Board Finances
Posted: Wednesday, 07 November 2007
Quite a few other NHS boards are in the same predicament AL. That is not to say that NHS WI, has an excuse, but I've been dealing with the local NHS for quite a while now, and there seems to be an awful lot of admin. workers, not that I wish any to be paid-off, but the medical-admin. ratio has become unbalanced, in recent years, with more admin. than medical. I'm not, for one moment saying that all admin. staff should go, of course not, but surely savings could be made in that direction, rather than in the usual Patient Care direction. Just an observation, and my ( humble) opinion, no grinding of axes on this croft. ( if an accident was to happen, whilst grinding said axes, would I get treatment, in a safe, and timely manner?) Cheery...

emporio alanjohn has sumitted a very competitive tender for vinegar and brown paper that should result in significant savings for the health authority and a peerage for alanjohn himself

I understand that Sir alanjohn (why wait till next year's list? I'll grant him the title right now!) is willing to provide to all fish and chips establishments within a mile of an NHS branch, from Anstruther to Stromness, brown paper and vinegar at half price until the end of the year.
