This is a MUST READ story from the BBC, highlighting latest medical research in the UK published in the British Medical Journal. Check it out!

BBC News – Surgery ‘has growing death risk through the week’.

The research concludes that it is more dangerous to have elective surgery at the end of the week because levels of aftercare at the weekend may be seriously reduced.

In my mind. there is a case for the UK’s  National Health Service (NHS) to renegotiate ALL contracts for doctors, nurses and care workers introducing flexible rostering spreading the work load over weekends and at nights more effectively.

Any thoughts?
