Quotes

In 2008, the Department of Health for England stated that "a sound evidence base that demonstrates how pharmacy delivers effective, high quality and value for money services is needed" ; this systematic review aims to respond to this requirement
Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, said: "The NHS is treating record numbers of people. That's why we are growing the workforce further with a new class of medic so busy doctors have more time to care for patients."
"The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found. Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in 'waste-to-energy' plants which generate power for heat. Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded 'totally unacceptable.'"
