- The NHS deserves support this winter
It is not as though most people in the UK are unaware of the pressure and difficult situation the NHS is facing these days. Even people who haven’t had personal experience of the NHS of late will have seen the multiple, almost countless, reports in the media. There is very little money available in the NHS and this means that services are being stretched to breaking point. In some places, the NHS is probably well beyond breaking point but somehow, the organisation still manages to keep going, providing a fantastic service for so many people.
- Pharmacists can alleviate NHS pressure
If there is one way that the NHS is going to move forward, it is through smarter use of the full resources available within the healthcare sector. It is natural that people want to speak to or see a GP when they are ill but there are many times when people don’t need to speak to a medical professional of this level. There are many different types of medical professionals and the NHS has to start using the available resources in the smartest possible manner.
- NHS bosses draw up winter plans
With the summer now behind us and autumn and winter looming, it is vital that people and organisations start to plan ahead. There has already been a lot of scaremongering about the standard of winter weather Britain is to expect this year. It’ll probably be the fault of Brexit but even though the weather warnings probably won’t live up to their hype, there is a need to make sure that people are fully prepared. This is definitely the case for people that need further assistance such as the elderly and the vulnerable.
