I agree with Youssef El-Gingihy on this:

The cuts, closures and privatisation were all demanded by the Conservatives who have been in government for the last eight years.

Did they intend to create the nursing shortage that is causing so much harm now? I don’t think so.

They simply didn’t think about it that hard.

Any situation that means people must go further, work harder, pay more to get the same result is to be deplored.

… Except by the Conservatives, of course. They won’t care.

It’s somebody else’s problem.

One of the biggest NHS trusts is to stop providing chemotherapy at one of its hospitals because it has too few specialist cancer nurses to staff the unit.

The Cedar Centre at King George hospital in Ilford, east London, will cease provision from 12 November because four of its nurses have quit and two others have gone on maternity leave.

It is thought to be the first time the NHS’s widespread staffing problems have led to a specialist cancer unit no longer being able to offer a vital service such as chemotherapy.

More than 500 patients a year received their cancer treatment there, and in future patients will have to go to Queen’s hospital in nearby Romford instead.
