    Mid Staff's trust bankrupt !

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 16 Apr 2013, 11:15 am

    Mid Staffs NHS foundation trust declared bankrupt

    Thousands of patients may be forced to switch hospitals after regulator says administrators will take over troubled trust.

    Mid Staffordshire is the first foundation trust a supposed marker of financial excellence in the NHS to face the same fate. In reality the trust has been under the microscope ever since evidence of poor care emerged five years ago. An inquiry by Robert Francis QC into hundreds of "excess" deaths at the hospital between 2005 and 2009 concluded in February this year that there had been failure at every level of the health service.

    Read more from The Guardian HERE.




    For anybody that is interested: What is an NHS Foundation Trust anyway ?

    It appears that a number of NHS Trust hospitals have become "Foundation Trusts" so that they can move away from government control and can - on a not for profit basis - be responsible for their own destiny.

    Now that a number of these types of Trust status hospitals have got into trouble, maybe the government of the day should look again at this idea ?

    Opinions please.....

    Another failure for privatisation I think.

    Mind you, this place has been heading downhill for a very long time.

    Hospital Foundation Trusts are like the so-called "free" schools and the new "Academies", in that that they are ALL attempts at moving these entities away from state control.

    Some might say "privatisation by the back door".

    Blair started this rot via his rightist ideas and Cameron has just ran with it as far and as fast as he thinks he can get away with.

    Very soon the latest chapter in this privatisation drive will come about when they take the NHS money away from the ordinary NHS hospital trusts and give it to the local doctors to dish out as, and when, they think fit.

    This move WILL be the last act that will be required to easily and totally privatise the NHS beyond repair.
