So the government decides to tinker with even more statistics, feedback and reviewing of the NHS and the schools. Which will inevitably mean even more bureaucrats to monitor it. Do you think nurses should nurse? So do I, but the government wants them to become managers (bureaucrats) too:
It will consider how nurses could develop their skills as leaders and managers such as being given more freedom to commission and run their own services.
I can imagine the scenario. Poor old boy in hospital bed: "Nurse, nurse, I think I've just coughed up a lung". Old boy in next bed shouts: "It's no good they're all on a management awayday looking at ethnic and disabled recruitment levels". But he wouldn't be in there in reality because they will be refusing to treat smokers by then to finance more managers!
And people in business complain about bureaucracy. Tell you what try being a teacher and then moan about bureaucracy and red tape. Yet again I've been considering teaching but not now, having seen what is involved, more and more bureaucracy and politically correct posturing.
Tell you what Gordon, if the government just let teachers, health professionals and others just get on with their jobs, instead of constantly tinkering, we may then have a health service and education system to be proud of again.
Parents and patients don't want to fill in evaluation and monitioring forms every time they fart, they just want to be confident that their schools and hospitals do the job which their ever spiralling taxes pay for. The less government does the more chance of that actually happening.
