NHS Cash Crisis

Hopefully, Labour will overcome the current media frenzy about a cash crisis in the NHS. For Tony Blair to interrupt a holiday, it must be bad! Hospitals and staff should face sanctions for breaching budgets when management are responsible for them. Why set budgets if they can be ignored with impunity?

Was Gordon Brown rash awarding 1.3m NHS workers pay rises in the 2006 budget? How can any hospital trust manage their finances when a third party determines their pay rates!?!
