  1. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/28/gps-offered-cash-to-refer-fewer-people-to-hospital I thought GPs were already finding it hard to cope with the workload? This sounds an odd way to try and fix the system. HB
  2. The EU has barred the NHS from checking the qualifications of EU doctors and nurse, that means thousands of European doctors and nurses will be able to practice in this country without checks on their qualifications. These new rules in the EU, mean they will be given electronic passports’ which will automatically allow them to practice in hospitals and GP’s surgeries. Europe will issue these passports to nurses, midwives and some other medical staff from January 1st, and doctors in two years’ time, without checking their qualifications or whether they have lied or been suspended.

  5. This is very worrying ? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-30005682
  6. I heard someone from this association on Radio 4 this morning. There's nothing on their website and the podcast isn't up yet, but I'll post it when it is. I'm not quite clear what they do, but it seems to involve supporting patients who are having trouble getting the treatment they want, or who are getting nowhere with complaints against a hospital.
