[...] Peter Swinyard, chair of the , said: “From a patient perspective it means GPs are paid to not look after them. It’s a serious dereliction of duty, influenced by CCGs trying to balance their books.” [...] would let hospitals treat the most needy cases. [...] The Department of Health and Social Care made clear that no patient should be denied care. “Patients must never have their access to necessary care restricted - we would expect local clinical commissioning groups and NHS England to intervene immediately if this were the case,” a spokesperson said. //&! making GPs ever more unpopular - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/28/satisfaction-with-gps-at-lowest-level-for-30-years-survey-finds https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/27/fifth-of-prescribed-antibiotics-are-unnecessary-study-finds

Charities call for action over cancer waiting times - BBC News
Cancer charities have called for urgent action to reduce the length of time patients are having to wait for key diagnostic tests.

Nearly 16,000 people were waiting longer than the target six weeks for procedures such as CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds in December.

That compared to 3,554 people on 31 December 2015.

Charities said the figures paint a picture of a service struggling to keep up with growing demand.

After the 2008-09 financial crisis, the hope was that a combination of economic recovery, inflation and austerity would shrink the debt mountain. This, though, was too optimistic. Growth has been below par, inflation subdued and austerity self-defeating. (“Global debt is the danger: beware the butterfly moment” Financial Times 6 January 2018)
