Quotes

...a Cochrane Review reported that 'DOT did not improve cure rates compared with people without DOT', and guidelines from NICE published in 2011 found "no evidence from controlled studies on the use of DOT in the UK"
'Most GP practices provide good care,' said Professor Steve Field, chief inspector of general practice at the CQC. "We have confirmed this in our pilot inspections so far. We can't allow those that provide poor care to continue to let their patients have an inadequate service. I want to do all I can to drive up standards in those that are not providing services people deserve."
Mr Salmond said: "The overall budget for Scotland has been cut by eight per cent. If we, as we have [already], decided to protect the NHS, which we've done, that's a third of our spending. That means the rest of the budget takes a 12 per cent cut…. We believe there's a privatisation agenda and a charging agenda, which means less money spent in England, and under devolution this has a knock-on effect to Scotland. To protect the NHS we have to control it financially to ensure it is safe in public hands."
"The majority of a diabetic child's care will be done by a paediatric diabetes specialist nurse. However, school nurses have roles to play, such as helping to manage a child's healthcare plan, raising awareness of diabetes amongst staff, and having an input on the school's medical condition's policy" Libby Dowling, clinical advisor at Diabetes UK, said
