- 17. Blame Labour for Mid-Staffs scandal... says ex-Labour Health Secretary Frank Dobson who warned Tony Blair against targets & competition in hospitals
A former Labour Cabinet Minister broke ranks last night and disowned Tony Blair’s government for the ‘reckless’ NHS shake-up blamed for the Mid-Staffordshire hospitals scandal.Frank Dobson, Health Secretary from 1997-99, said he warned Mr Blair that a ‘mad rush’ to bring in more competition and targets in hospitals could harm patients. But Mr Blair ignored him and gave his Cabinet job to a crony who agreed to force through the changes.Mr Dobson told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I told Blair that reckless changes could undermine patient care, but he didn’t want to listen.’

This is a 2.2 per cent increase – lower than the 4.4 per cent real terms increase this government has already given the NHS. Labour also left many questions unanswered – here are six:

- 20. NHS Accuse Burnham of Misreporting Facts For Political Gain Senior Official Says Shadow Health Secretary misled commons
A senior NHS official has accused Andy Burnham’s office of ”misinterpreting and misreporting” evidence about taxis being used as ambulances “in order to present a grossly inaccurate picture for the purposes of apparent political gain”. Ken Wenman, the chief executive of the South Western Ambulance Service, says that Burnham’s team spun a Freedom of Information response from the service to make the stats look worse than they really are. Guido has his damning letter to the Shadow Health Secretary, in which he concludes “I am astonished that anyone would present such misleading information to the House of Commons.”

The NHS is paying “extortionate” prices for basic computer equipment and services, with dealers collecting profit margins of up to 328 per cent, a study has found.For instance, it was revealed that the NHS pays £6 for laser printer part that costs just £1.40 wholesale.The NHS also pays £10.50 for a 4GB USB flash memory stick that is sold at wholesale for £5.28, and available to the public on Amazon for £5.99. A basic three-metre internet cable can cost hospitals £1.73, versus 72 pence at wholesale.On average, at central and regional levels, the NHS buys computer services and equipment at 28 per cent more than their wholesale price, compared to the best average in the private sector of only 3 per cent, said Mercato, a firm which tracks government and commercial IT procurement. As well as basic items this includes expensive equipment such as servers, and software.

Ed Miliband’s health policy was in chaos today after he took less than 24 hours to abandon his promise to protect the NHS from another costly reorganisation.The Labour leader went from warning yesterday that he would not reverse the coalition’s controversial Health and Social Care Act to promising to do just that.While Labour has extended its lead over the Tories for being trusted with the health service, the confusion will do little to persuade voters Mr Miliband is ready to take tough decisions in government.

- 24. Can innovation transform the public sector?
Many parts of the private sector are being changed dramatically by digital technology. If you want to buy a house you can now visit a range of properties on line and see their floor plans and their inside and outside appearance from your home computer. If you want to buy any good or service you can google it and see a list of competing offers, usually with prices. You can order on line from your armchair. If you want to find a new job there are electronic jobs boards with choices of openings on offer. You can bank online, insure your car on line, undertake a study course on line. The opportunities are endless. The role and nature of the estate agent, the insurance broker, the bank clerk and the employment agency have altered substantially.

- 27. NHS Spending: The Facts | The TaxPayers Alliance
There was much talk this weekend about an extra £2 billion of funding for the NHS. Healthcare certainly has become a major issue in the general election campaign – that means a bidding war is underway, with politicians from all parties pledging more money without really explaining where it will come from.All too often politicians measure their performance on how much money they can spend rather than what taxpayers get in return.And this weekend’s row is particularly unedifying, considering just a few weeks ago the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges highlighted potential savings of £2bn through better use of medicine, tests, operating theatres, and hospital beds.

- 28. Lord Owen’s plot to topple the Coalition - Telegraph
David Owen, the former Social Democrat leader and partner of the Liberals, is plotting with Labour to undermine the Coalition’s NHS reforms and speculates about the possibility of toppling the Government, a leaked email obtained by The Daily Telegraph discloses.Lord Owen discusses how Labour can benefit from a “loss of confidence motion in 2013” against the Government and said that Ed Miliband, the party’s leader, should campaign on “saving the NHS”. He urges Labour shadow ministers to introduce radical amendments to NHS legislation, which he will support.On Wednesday, Lord Owen will chair a parliamentary meeting of the Royal Colleges, which represent medical professionals, and is playing a key role in attempting to scupper the reforms. On Tuesday night, David Cameron was involved in attempts to shore up medical support for the legislation amid growing opposition to plans to give doctors control of NHS budgets.The Telegraph has obtained an email sent by Lord Owen on Oct 14 to Labour spokesmen, including Baroness Thornton and Lord Beecham. He wrote: “The truth is that the NHS is now seen by the country as a major dividing line between the Labour Party and that of the Conservative Party and, surprisingly, the Liberal Democrats.”

- 29. What I learned while nearly dying - The Spectator
There’s some journalistic research you’d really never do by choice. Spending four days in an NHS hospital with a life-threatening pulmonary embolism, for example.Unfortunately it was out of my hands. I fell off a horse, one thing led to another, and suddenly there I was, lying in what I imagine is a reasonably typical NHS ward being tended by all those multi-ethnic nurses and hard-pressed doctors you read about in the newspapers but rarely encounter yourself because in order to do so you have to be quite seriously ill.So: what have I learned?

NEARLY two million non-emergency patients used overstretched hospital accident and emergency departments last year, new research reveals.The College of Emergency Medicine data, the first of its kind, reveals nearly 5,500 patients a day leave emergency units without needing any treatment.College President Dr Cliff Mann says the extra workload, which could have been dealt with by a pharmacist or GP, is pushing emergency medicine into “collapse” and putting the lives of patients in genuine urgent need at risk.A Sunday Express investigation has discovered that over the past year people have gone to A&E departments for trivial problems including chewing gum in their hair, broken false nails, a splinter, headaches and feeling sick.
