British Social Attitudes #NHS + #SocialCare satisfaction data analysis by @TheKingsFund @NuffieldTrust @RuthRobbo @jappleby123 @HarryAEvans @NinaHemmings92 is out. Won’t rehearse content but thread gives view from @HealthwatchE perspective. @danwellings @jacoblant #HealthForCare
Here’s the link. And my subsequent comments on the #NHS figures are made against the background context that although there’s a statistically significant decline in overall satisfaction, which is concerning, it’s still quite high for individual aspects.

Top 5 things causing #NHS dissatisfaction are all at the heart of what the #NHSLongTermPlan focuses on - so getting local/regional plans right is vital and the @HealthwatchE network’s current engagement work in partnership with @NHSEngland is so important.

Now reading the the #TopolReview report - Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future. It's an illuminating read topol.hee.nhs.uk #DigitalHealth
It's clear that a lot of effort has gone into the #TopolReview - it paints a glorious vision of what healthcare would look like over the next 20 years (for both staff and patients) - enabled by technology such as #genomics, #AI and #robotics
For me the #Topolreview has too narrow a focus. It's been commissioned by healthcare, yet we know that with an aging population, many people with long term conditions have to rely upon #socialcare as well. We need joined up thinking, imho.

Please note, this research is economic garbage.
The U.K. government doesn’t collect anyone’s tax to put aside for the future whether that’s for pensions or social care.
There will be no funding black hole for social care in 2031.
#MMT
It is a government choice not to fund it today and it will be a government choice whoever is in power to fund it or not in 2031.
The only constraint to the provision of social care services that any future government will face will be a resource one not a financial one.
#MMT
“Research carried out by pensions and risk consultancy Hymans Robertson suggested a German-style system could raise half of the money needed to plug the £30b-a-year gap in social care funding the U.K. is facing by 2031”

This week we'll be looking at 5 key challenges affecting the #NHS & #SocialCare workforce. We want to hear YOUR views through our #TalkHealthandCare platform on how we can improve your experience working in the sector. The first challenge explores whether staff feel empowered…
🎯CHALLENGE: Staff don’t always feel in control or empowered about the decisions regarding the care they provide, leaving them feeling unsupported by their colleagues. We want to create an environment where staff can fulfil their potential. Have your say: dhscworkforce.crowdicity.com/category/29628
📊 More than 70% of staff feel their manager values their work [Source: NHS Staff Survey’17] – but we want EVERYONE to feel supported & empowered. How can we ensure this happens? Join the #TalkHealthAndCare conversation: bit.ly/2OAtDoS

1/Children & young people with autism and learning disabilities who could be living in the community with specialist support are languishing for years in Assessment & Treatment Units, some of them locked up 24/7 in isolation rooms, bec of severe financial pressure on Local Auths
2/ At the same time, private providers running these ATUs are raking in profits, being paid £452m per yr in what has become a market driven provision where autistic and LD people are little more than commodities
3/ This in spite of the fact that caring for them in the community would be far less expensive not to mention far better for the individuals concerned, their quality of life, their security and safety and their wellbeing

5th July 2018 will be the 70th birthday of our beloved #NHS.

This THREAD argues that it is in severe danger under this #Toryshambles government, with #Brexit posing an imminent & particularly invidious threat.

To #SaveOurNHS we must work tirelessly together to #StopBrexit.
1/ Today's devolved #NHS is a complex federation of tens of 000s of orgs employing some 1.7m workers. It's combined annual budget is just shy of £150bn. It handles, overwhelmingly successfully, almost a million patients daily.

With each box maybe 000s of orgs, & England only:
2/ Unresolved public health issues & a fast-expanding multi-morbid elderly population, coupled with chronic underfunding & the blowback from the butchery of social care since 2010 means the #NHS is pressured as never before.
