No com­fort from NHS bosses at meet­ing

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

On Satur­day I at­tended a pub­lic meet­ing or­gan­ised by that ex­cel­lent vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion, Con­cern for Health in East Kent (Chek), and ad­dressed by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Chek and the east Kent Hos­pi­tals trust.

Chek gave a pre­sen­ta­tion that put East Kent NHS at the very bot­tom of the na­tional per­for­mance league ta­bles in England for a num­ber of es­sen­tial ser­vices. East Kent is get­ting a far lower stan­dard of health care than the rest of England.

That is not only a scan­dal, but a mat­ter of the gravest con­cern to in­di­vid­u­als to whom med­i­cal care can be a mat­ter of life and death. By that I mean ev­ery­one.
