It was certainly an eye opener into how the major incident process swung into action and the dedication and professionalism of all of the staff.
Last nights was very interesting too and as well as brilliant surgery showed the way that the Trust used their private patients floor for income generation.
My Trust where I'm a Governor has also done the same, built a small pp Unit and all of the money flows back to us and not to shareholders. Trying to balance the books and make constant savings/cost cutting is a perpetual headache, would love to see one Mr J Hunt trying to do it!!!

 I suppose ,like many my view of Private Practice was quite outdated,so it was good to see the Trust's standpoint explained.The reality is until the NHS is more realistically funded ,we will all have to come up with creative ways of making the money go further.Preferably without resorting to selling off it's assets cheaply to someones mates? The Naylor report is still lurking in the wings!
