Quotes

"I wanted to change the focus to utilisation as opposed to rationalisation."
Gillian McCreath, who will chair the meeting, said: "It is also important that Badenoch and Strathspey residents are given the chance to have a say about the delivery of health and social care in their area and the District Partnership is a good way for them to engage with service providers. I hope we get a good turn-out for the meeting."
...Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive and director of health and social care at NICE, said: "This quality standard gives primary, community and secondary care services the most up-to-date advice on the best ways to minimise the risks of infections." This comes as the government is also seeking to improve NHS safety standards with the introduction of new safe staffing level requirements
"Given these challenging times across the economy, I would urge unions instead to engage with us in meaningful discussions about how to come out of a period of pay restraint in sensible way. Then we can explore solutions affecting the lowest paid and plan for the longer term – not for short term disruption which will affect those in need.”"
