‘No joined-up thinking’ – within Labour run NHS and all public services.
The so-called joined-up working is like a Yetti – everyone has heard it exists but no one has seen it.
The BMA first raised concerns about NHS funding shortfalls in a letter to Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt in August.
"It is hard to understand why at a time when the government has invested unprecedented funding in the health service, trusts may have to lay off staff and close wards," said Dr Paul Miller, chairman of the BMA’s consultants’ committee
"Something is going terribly wrong when patients pay the price for these financial problems and the government’s lack of joined-up thinking."
