@DBDouble @MarieELFT @BCG @NSFTtweets @NorwichCCG Mental heath has been repeatedly screwed by the Norfolk NHS system. There is nothing about the 48 per cent rise in MH referrals with cuts in funding since the CCGs were founded. Why should we expect any different this time around? The PFI money pit at @NNUH hasn't gone away.
@DBDouble @MarieELFT @BCG @NSFTtweets @NorwichCCG The problem is that hope is not enough, it is cash that counts. The review talks about the STP's deficit, currently £95m and rising to £130m+ without action and the only example given of reducing cost of new staff is transferring staff and budget from @NSFTtweets to do GPs' work.
@DBDouble @MarieELFT @BCG @NSFTtweets @NorwichCCG Four questions are, for example: 1. Where do the 127 Band 6 nurses come from? 2. How do CMHTs function without them, if from NSFT? 3. If Band 6 nurses doing work currently done by GPs, who is doing the secondary care CMHT nursing? 4. Who is paying? NSFT? £95m deficit in STP.
