    £20.74 million more awarded to hospitals in England but sadly none for Southport.



    The Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt recently announced a second wave of funding to ease pressure on hospital emergency departments ahead of next winter.

    The Secretary of State will confirm that a further £20.74 million has been awarded to 27 hospitals in England, which follows an initial £55.98 million given to 70 hospitals in April. This money is part of the dedicated funding announced in the Spring Budget to ensure local A&Es are prepared for the additional demands that winter brings.

    Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said:

    The NHS prepares well in advance for winter each year, but despite the hard work and dedication of staff, demand on services continues to increase as a result of our ageing population.

    This vital investment will help hospitals change the way they assess and see patients so people are given the most appropriate medical care as quickly as possible.

    The funding will be used to help hospitals properly equip themselves ahead of winter, particularly to handle the large volumes of patients attending A&E.

    Hospitals will be able to ‘stream’ patients when they arrive in A&E, with a clinician assessing their needs and deciding where they can receive the most appropriate care.

    It will also allow hospitals to build GP practices within their A&E units where patients with less urgent needs can receive treatment, further alleviating pressure.

    The recent funding will also support wider plans set out by NHS England to improve A&E performance in England by 2018. In particular, it will help hospitals hit the target of admitting, transferring or discharging 95% of patients within 4 hours.

    Well didn't everyone who didn't vote Tory expect this. We've now got a Tory MP perhaps he'll tell us WHY Southport is ripe for the A&E being closed or downgraded.

    They say there's none so blind as those who cannot see, so voting Tory they voted for the demise of the NHS.

    The National budget has been in deficit continuously for the past twenty years - i.e. expenditure is far greater than the taxes and revenue received. The greatest expenditure is the NHS, benefits and education.
    The problem with the NHS is that too, has been running at a huge loss for many years. The choice the government has is to keep throwing money into it by cutting money back for other expenses, or to make cut backs to streamline the NHS to bring it back into a balance. Southport is not the only hospital affected! Seven hospitals in London alone are to close. Yes, it hurts! But the alternative is Labour's way, where they would just print more and more money - which is an obvious path to destruction - or they would attempt to borrow more money. They would seek a soft exit from the EU, that would cost money as the EU demanded - just to be able to go cap in hand and ask for a loan for the NHS. This would be denied! The EU's central bank is refusing all future loans as it is not in a financial position to grant them.

    O the days of the magic money tree and bankruptcy for the country. Then we can borrow from the IMF with punitive conditions; just like Greece.
