Either institutional or population-based systems can provide adequate and appropriate care to our population. The problem is that those managing the process at present appear to have an inflated opinion of their own capabilities and organize their structure and remuneration to suit.
Recent failures, leading to lessons being learned - and then as quickly forgotten, do nothing for what used to be a compassionate service.
Until this is reinstated, from the highest levels, we shall continue to rely on working staff who are, in the main, doing their best with inadequate resources, but are being driven from above by inferior management. Reverse this problem and there are adequate funds to provide all of the eligible population with suitable health care.
