NHS IN DANGER: BMA CALL FOR INTEGRATED CARE

NHS_cameronKerry Pollard recently met with Keith Ward, the Chief Executive of the British Medical Association, to be briefed on the issues that the BMA sees as crucial for our NHS.

There is no doubt that the A&E crisis looms large in their thinking currently but longer term the BMA sees the introduction of an integrated health & social care system as being vital in providing the health needs of our community.

Locally a consultation is underway to seek our views on the future shape of our own health services, with an ageing population, bed blocking and inadequate social care it is probably right to follow the lead of the BMA’s call for an integrated health & social care system here in St Albans.
