Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health, sets out his vision for the NHS. This includes a continued focus on safety and quality of care, an emphasis on transparency and patient power, and a goal to make the NHS the world’s largest learning organisation.
This would mean removing competition. Doing so could attach more money to where it's needed.
It means streamlining bureaucracies.....a single local management structure without any conflicting systemic issues.
Perhaps one day, eh?
The patient suffers from cognitive dysfunction due to cerebral vascular deficiency, and also has some physical and learning disabilities. But he is defined only as 'schizophrenic' and as though that label has causal integrity. The Trust's CEO first put in my letter of concern as a complaint and without my permission, and now refuses to allow a genuine complaint on the grounds a second complaint is not possible. He continues to prevent my communicating with psychiatric and social service professionals and is threatening to further restrict me, whatever that means.
I am being characterised as 'bullying' for insisting my son's diagnosis is recognised so that he can have treatment relevant to it.
If only the 'honest diagnosis' the Health Secretary is emphasizing becomes the basis of NHS delivery, but for now, my son is suffering from complications due to the vascular problems consequent on a head>neck injury, and there is no accountability.
Advice on what to do is very welcome.
