Stop asking us to deliver the impossible, NHS trusts urge ministers | Society | The Guardian
Ministers and NHS bosses are being urged to stop asking the health service to “deliver the impossible” of higher standards of care when it is being denied the money it needs to do its job properly. The plea from the organisation that represents NHS trusts in England was accompanied by a blunt warning that care for patients is already deteriorating and that even a flu outbreak could “destabilise” some hospitals this winter.

Send patients to private sector to avert winter crisis, hospitals told | Society | The Guardian
Hospitals have been told to turn to the private sector to “maximise elective activity”, with operations such as knee and hip replacements likely to be among the outsourced procedures to help free up beds for urgent patients.

The measures are likely to have a significant cost to the NHS.

The obesity epidemic is an economic issue | Business | The Guardian
Free-market forces have helped create a health crisis – and governments must take action to stop subsidising junk food [...] However, food companies prefer to deflect rhetoric about poor diet being the primary cause of obesity, and instead promote messages focused on exercise and other factors – a phenomenon termed “leanwashing”.

Accountable Care Organisations and what they mean for the NHS with STPs
Linda Peeno, whistle blower for the US ‘managed care model’, said in 2009

“Things have never been worse for patients. The corporate machines are well-developed and expertly operational. The methods are more insidious, covert and devious. In addition to outright denials of care, new tactics proliferate to avoid, delay, limit, substitute, and manipulate care for the maximization of profits. ”

NHS financial problems endemic and no longer sustainable, say auditors | Society | The Guardian
Auditors were particular alarmed by the decision to transfer £950m from the NHS’s budget for buildings and IT to pay staff’s wages. [...] Meg Hillier, the chair of the public accounts committee, said the Department of Health was making “pie in the sky assumptions” about closing that gap. [...] The bodies estimate that trusts and CCGs can make a further £14.9bn of savings by “moderating the growth in demand for healthcare services” and by making 2% productivity and efficiency improvements.

NHS £8bn budget plan 'not enough', say hospital bosses - BBC News
Patients in England will see rising waiting times, rationing and cuts in the number of staff unless the NHS gets more money, health bosses say.
A five-year plan to increase the budget by £8bn a year by 2020 was only set out last year, but now hospital bosses have warned that is not enough.
Chris Hopson, of NHS Providers, said the settlement needed to be redrawn.
It comes as the half-year accounts for 2016-17 showed hospitals and other NHS trusts were failing to keep in budget.
