EDP Front Page
Glad to see the EDP reporting the continuing decimation of Norfolk's Health Services. It's all money driven and how the local PCTs can get away with saying it's all for the patients' own good I do not know. 57 beds are being closed all over Norfolk, 26 of them in North Norfolk alone on the pretext that these people can all be cared for adequately at home. Absolute rubbish. If they could be cared for at home they would be already. And as I understand it many of the nursing staff are going to refuse to do home visits on their own. A complete shambles, and all courtesy of Dr John Reid, Labour's Secretary of State for Health.
