Social Care Faces Looming Cash Crisis, Say MPs On Health Committee.

As I get ready to travel overseas, reading articles like this will no doubt make me want to stay away longer.

I can remember when I first started working in the early seventies, I was working away from home in Darlington in the North East of the UK. I was unfortunately admitted to Darlington Memorial Hospital for a week with food poisoning.

My memories of the NHS Darlington Memorial Hospital are still vivid forty years later. What I especially remember is the cleanliness, the excellent nurses in their immaculate starched uniforms and the discipline and routine of hospital life. No doubt with years of statistics under Labour and cost cutting under the Coalition Government, I would probably be appalled if I went back.

It’s quite shocking when one thinks of the advances in medicine in forty years, just how much standards of basic care have probably declined.
