"All right one. This episode of supporting leaders podcasts. We have dr daniels in all and we discover that we went to the same program at creighton. our past probably like just just crossed each other But i'm so excited to have you on the show. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to have a conversation with us looking forward to it. So let's just start off and share with us a little bit about your background. I mean you seem to be involved in so many things. You can definitely tell. You're an advocate for a lot of different groups of people and and you're engaged in political things. The arts Work so share with us a little bit about who you are and what you do. Well i'll start at the beginning. I was I grew up in northwestern iowa outside of a tiny town called pomeroy which is about six hundred fifty people Youngest of four grip on the farm right across the road from my dad's parents my grandparents. So i saw them every day growing up which i am very grateful order but in small town iowa you have to do everything be involved in everything so i was in all four sports played. The charm sang in the choir. Did all of the things was in. Nhs or h ffa. So i truly am grateful for that Well rounded nece that. Allow me to really try so many things. And i think that's still kinda tested to my career in my life. I like to be involved. In a variety of even today North west island's pretty conservative and so growing up as a little boy was very challenging to to recognize what i was going through to see others. Who were like me and should not be alone and so i went to iowa. Central community. college burst in fort. Dodge years and then moved to into moines in two thousand six to perform at adventure land. So you're at adventure land in the summer of two thousand six and if you know eventually know there's a stage that comes up from out of the ground i performed Had eight shows everyday. They were short set. So it wasn't too long but i we a country show at patriotic show in greece. So that was a ton of fun. And i think really helped me develop competence in front of people because you have to have confidence when performing And then i started going to school full time while working fulltime in. I did that for ten years. Finish undergrad did a masters in health and then completed the doctor of education and leadership from creighton. But my career really started in nonprofit type. Still were still working nonprofits but it started working with individuals with intellectual disabilities and technically and still employed doing that type of work. That i transitioned to more part-time respite. But i have a client that i worked with since two thousand six which is just wild to think about the had that relationship with him for so long
What Is the Healthiest Diet Out There?
"This week's food for thought sees. Nhs dietitian and runner. Charlie watson and i explore to enjoy a healthier diet and what we can do to make those better choices. Hello charlie hi. Thanks so much for having me on the podcast. Such a pleasure. I've been so looking forward to this episode. I think just because it's going to help so many people because it's just easy as it is To tell you clients to stay tougher thing in moderation because that phrase is definitely one that we tend to use definitely and motivation is so different for everybody that you can. You can think you'll giving one piece of advice. And ashley the way that somebody interprets is so different to the way that you interpret or your mom interpreters your or your husband or whoever so yeah. It's something that we might have one interpretation but other people have many different ones. I and i think that's part of the complicated nature of our jobs but equally how things are portrayed in the media or online in particular. I felt most people online these days to get to get information of course and it's even more difficult. How do you read between the lines. How do you interpret how anyone's going to see what you have to say. Because what is i. Guess the question. Everyone wants to know is what is the healthiest diet. Charlie is the one out there. So i was thinking about this and i and i don't think there is one particular diet that fits everybody because we are all so different. We will have individual needs. We have individual goals. Health concerns health history. And so i think the healthiest for you is the one that makes you feel best. Both mentally and physically. Because i think that's such a big part of our eating is our mental health and the social aspects. and the you don't want to stress even if a diet is making you feel great physically. If it's adding a lot stressed your life might not be the best one for you. So it's about finding what is right for you. What makes you feel at

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine
UK: Shortfall in vaccine deliveries will delay jabs
"British health authorities say covert nineteen Bucks nations for people under the age of fifty eight may be delayed for up to a month the delays caused by short fall in supply partly due to reduced deliveries from the serum institute of India Britain's National Health Service says that vaccine supplies available for fires doses would be significantly constrained beginning of March the twenty ninth according to a letter from the NHS's chief commercial officer and a doctor as a result people under fifty shouldn't get shots unless they have underlying health conditions the put them at higher risk there is shockingly London
EU chief warns of action to protect pledged vaccine supplies
"The NHS is now warning that it will have to slow down its rollout because of a cut in supplies. But this comes after the European Commission chief as a vandal a and threatened to halt exports off the vaccine to the UK. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis off the century. And I'm not ruling out anything for now because we have to make sure that Europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible. Human lives civil liberties on but also the prosperity of our economy are dependent on that on the speed of vaccination on moving forward. Fatherland also demanded reciprocity from the UK, saying that the block is still waiting for exports off jobs

Inside The UK’s COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout
"Sarah. Let's begin with an overview of the vaccination program and how it's going we hit that big target of fifteen million jobs to the top full most vulnerable groups and it's now rolling out to all those over sixty in an effort to seventeen million more people. What is the government's next target. The vaccination rollout in the uk is going astonishingly well particularly in contrast to some of the other be pandemic grand projects like the test and trace program where the second best performer amongst large countries. Often fail and as of last night we've vaccinated sixteen and a half million people and way getting incredibly high take-up particularly in the older age groups in one or two of the age cohorts. I think it's even reached ninety. Nine percents and i think part of the reason for that is that the nhs has been in charge of the rollout in the nhl of course in the uk's immensely trusted brand if you like. And i think it's really been an advantage for the program that it hasn't relied on the kind of outsourcing the private companies that affected people's response for example to test and trace. I think one of the reasons that compliance with isolation has not been as good as it might be been is people have been getting calls from outsourced contact centres whereas here. It's the nhs that's been inviting you in your job. And the speed at. Which it's been done is astonishingly high when you think the first job happened on december the eighth and we're only now at the nineteen th of february and as a sixteen and a half million people already covered with that protection
Katz Kiely Talks about how frontline.live helps the NHS with PPE and why they have open sourced the platform.
"Can you tell everyone is listening. Walk is frontline live and then how you first came about forming it. 'cause you did an amazing campaign and support early in the lockdown so what frontline live is an online live data mac which means that any healthcare worker here is on the front line who finds themselves short at ppe. And therefore is at risk of getting ill can either tweet a request using hashtags hashtag frontline map. Hashtag the postcode so we can make sure they're actually at a healthcare organization not just collecting. Ppe reason and then hashtag what it is they need or they can fill in an online form of frontline dot live and we will then do two things one of them. Put a dot opin on a digital map so that people can see with the need is but also now because of a new partnership two other organizations the healthcare workers association and met share supply drive. It means that we basically have a warehouse of free. Pp which all partners of what rated long and hard for by raising money and getting donations. And because of a partnership with hermes it means that as soon as somebody on the frontline requests vp. Because they're shows of it we can get free p. p. to them within forty eight hours. How did all of this started happening. I moved back to my house in sheffield so in lockdown home alone on zoom call with a friend of mine who is a senior us. I'm saying i can't get a delivery. I'm gonna have to go to the supermarket and she said okay. I can do one better than that. I'm going into the hospital tomorrow. We don't have any masks of probably be dealing with people with covert line flown. Can you imagine that feeling so then. Of course i became a little bit hyper aware of this particular problem. And because everyone on every social media channel that doctors nurses health care workers saying we have p p that's bound on the other side there's this incredible uprising of entrepreneurs who assisting forward money three d. printing visors. That's companies like brutal and burberry. And i'm barbara who've pivot their entire system that can make pp to give away so we've got people desperately in need and scud going without pp's any of us would put up with and people are trying to solve the problem but they couldn't see very other were and so then. I hear on the news one day. Burberry making scrubs. There's an nhs trust because they didn't have to contact burberry have had to go through some ministers in the government to ask them how they conduct bribery. Oh for goodness sake. This is ridiculous. Because i'm all about technical innovation so i thought it can't be that hard surely to find a way of making it easy for people on the front line to say i haven't got this so that people who've got supply can get it and quickly. Yeah that was my beginning and a guy who used to work with who used intel is at ucla now on run did to him. About how hard would it be for us to be able to collect data and put it live on a map so that people can see what's going on and we chatted for awhile for about an hour and then i didn't hear anything back from him midnight that night i get any email. He's already got his team on it. I'm like oh so then fast. Forward six weeks. I've had about fuzi. Volunteers who've sat forward the most incredible people people who well known in the industry. People go better things to do with their times. they busy. Who sat for just getting this. Were absolutely and we're going to make this happen so six weeks later. We launched the service in the first three month period. When all of this stuff you're talking about how they've got. The timelines has stepped forward giving his full page. Spreads is giving us full page. Adverts ocean outdoor gives us sixty with the biggest digital out of home screens across the country. So we can put stuff out there. Not one penny changes hands. A snapchat talked to the general manager. he goes. Yeah wherever we can do to help. We'll do a national campaign. you give gives your assets. We'll sort out view. I have never in my career. Repos talk about purpose and actually fears purpose. You will look forward to enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. But i've never seen anything like this in my life. The sad side of that is that the nhs in my humble opinion and i we were talking about this before. It's the jewel in our crown. It's something that we should be quite rightfully proud of. And then by an example we partnered with united health who have about one hundred thousand frontline. Health co worker members talking to them. And i'm saying i keep hearing stories from people on the front line that actually the idea of people tweeting their requests is really difficult because nobody does speak cow and people are being told not to use the service from my mouth. It being told not to use it. Yeah people are being told if they speak out about the fact that appea- shortages they will lose their jobs. Assist crazy if you can't do your job one wi fi. Find another way to do it. That's most entrepreneurs will okay. I can't go x. y. And found a way round it exactly and the system should be set up in a way. This is about somebody complaining about something. It's if you don't have you're putting your life at risk. Six hundred forty doctors nurses have died. Because there isn't enough got enough. So basically i'm finding out it's absolutely known as endemic that people inside the nhs all tolls not speak up about things and told they will lose their jobs so we moved it from just twitter to having a fool where people could Report anonymously if they were too scared to speak out off the fifteen hundred. Ish request for p. P. i reckon about eighty percents of them were done anonymously by people who was scared to speak out and some of the comments they left on those forms. Joss person frankly interesting. We've been up from. You has improved or got worse vitton. What's your gut fail. It's been interesting because there was a point where there was a story or other media about the fact that management we're turning healthcare workers to be quiet and then matt hancock said in the commons. This is not true. people will be protected. It's definitely from my perspective. People are less likely to speak out and obviously we had a bit of downtime where we registered frontline is a charity because there weren't as many cases and he gave his time to consolidate and build townships so we decided in september. Do a to find out whether or not people in healthcare organizations feel confident. They're going to have enough p. p. to see them through over this next crazy time which is become crazier guess. How many percent said they felt fully confident. They'd get enough. P p twenty eight. Wow wow wow wow that super-low eight percent of frontline healthcare workers believe they will get enough to keep them safe during this time that scary as a number. That's scary.
Israel's incredible Covid vaccine rollout story
"Collier who is obviously very prominent pro. Israel researcher and journalist. He tried to navigate through some of the reasons why israel has been so successful so fast and he says it's never going to be a single cause about why israel has responded so incredibly he says of course. Israel was an enormous high price on life. No soldier is left behind. And then he talks about the coup pat holum system and that is not one central player in the vaccination like the over here but several like cl- elite mcabe may hit it. This is the sort of multiple. Nhs scenario that we have in israel and it means that several brains in each community organized separately to deal with her impatience obviously science and technology great economic driver for the economy and the id system. There's no real bother about anonymity. It's not a big thing in israel. People know pretty much. Everyone is in many of the systems are integrated and of course a militarized system to handle mass events community like kibbutzim and small towns cities on the west bank as well. Everyone knows must've been the the half keyboards how farm communities which are becoming sort of districts and towns of of major cities and they respond well to hostile acts. This is a. This is kind of a security issue where the threat isn't from from bombs or rockets. It's a threat from house which is a similar threat. Yes i mean. There's much more to say on that as well. I mean you'll right in the the emergency response in israel is sadly perhaps very well refined become very well. Refunding has had to become very refined over the years. And we see that mentality driving. Israel's attempts to quash the virus and to get the vaccination writes all the way through one anecdote which struck me was that in one vaccination center recently. They run out of time so the vaccines enter had to close and they still had those of the vaccine left which had to be used that evening or so. Nurses went out into the streets and grabbed a piece of delivery guy and gave him a shot. I mean that sort of can do spirit has been viable. But i think there are other elements like practical elements as well the contributed towards success so for example early planning israel paid reportedly over the odds by some degree to gets these first vaccines in. Benjamin netanyahu himself developed a personal relationship with the bosses pfizer and promised to give pfizer israeli data about the vaccine use in response to getting these these first doses and of course there's always in a position to give them that data because it's got one of the best digitalized health system in the world which allows for that data to be harvested and then to be used in further research but there are other innovations well so for instance israeli scientists found a way of getting more doses out of each vial vaccine than had initially been intended therefore stretching it further and in addition when the vaccines arrived on these huge pallets in bangor in airport rather than take them out like that. The israeli logistics experts decided to find a way of abortion them in small books style. Size insulated boxes they could remain at seventy but be taken out by most bikes or whatever and post out into small centers throughout the country in the community so the people didn't have to travel too far sickly during lockdown things like that all of these small but vital innovations have contributed towards this message. Success all the way from the initial negotiations and securing those vaccines all the way down to the grassroots rollouts and everything in between it's been just a magnificent display of guinness with with the nostril national spirit. I was indeed a very privileged to speak to around leads. The head of research it collegiate. Who runs through the extraordinary artificial intelligence and data which israel has what they've mapped millions and millions of people in the israeli gene pool and of israel's gene pool extends to two hundred nations around the world it's an extraordinary level of data which they can then feed to monsieur buller adviser which is which is an incredible gift to be able to give enrich. We are very fortunate to be standing on. The shoulders of giants are people at the nineties. In israel where smart enough to create an electronic medical records and make them ubiquitous over the system so since mid ninety s collegiate we have had electronic medical records in all of physicians offices on so in every hospital ward and so does abundance of data of massive amounts being collected in harnessed for the use of our patients. This puts israel ahead of the curve in terms of planning and alleviating major medical problems which afflict the whole world. I think that is proving to be true. Because we put into practice into scale concepts that in other places are considered the theoretical and so we have at khalid been practicing predictive modeling in practice for over a decade now so tens and hundreds of thousands of people receiving care based on personalization and predictive models in massive scales for a decade. So i i do think that the availability of data the availability of the will to change and transform the system as well as the innovative spirit of the local eco-system within the health sector and from the outside all communist together to create a very interesting setting for innovation in practice. And this is four million people. Isn't it so you can help kill the world with all the different afflictions the different health issues that you see amongst those millions of people and they have arrived into israel from all four corners of the world so in a sense every population around the world can benefit from the data. You find the differences between people. We are now moving into an innovation driven strategy where we will try more. And more to take the insights that we've gained and take them out to the world in various ways in creating spinoffs and startups within khalid and also by allowing startups organizations from around the world to test. Drive their new ideas. Collegiate so we can actually prove whether or not they making a difference.

The E.U. Authorizes the First Vaccine to Fight Pandemic
"Yes, British nursing and everyday conversation, reassuring someone who's about to get a jab and then with just two words for done for history is made. But if you think that was the moment the world's first ever completed, covert 19 vaccine was given to a patient 91 year old Margaret Keenan. It happens with typical British understatement, but it is no less extraordinary. Never before has a vaccine being made so quickly and with such high stakes Care home in Eastern England.

The government do more quickly if they choose to grasp that nettle when and indeed made even more easier if they decide to have a more relaxed policy on immigration for people who work in social it. Is there something that could have done this summer. That they could have been feeling the results of right now. I mean in terms of decisions that should be made in the summer to make the second wave. More by the jess. What could they have done if you the health secretary. Wha- what would you have wished into existence. I think they did have to spend money on tests and trace but at the same time they could have created substantial step down capacities down beds. Essentially community has large community hospital type facility. Because that's what's clogging possible bed. Does disease people who convalescing he convalescing somewhere else. Yeah and there was. There were bids from the nhs for that kind of capacity as well as for for money to build and make adjustments to hospitals and enable. Were things that would've would've made a second wave more straight for more a little easier to handle. And dave do you know if those are the proposals that were turned down by the treasury. Yes there were the treasury. Did turn down some proposals for that. Kind of capacity Do you do we know why were. They not thought to be too important to. They not think they would be needed or at the time with the. Nhs there was a big focus home as you related to. The policy was to not have a second wave of corona virus so a great deal of energy and money wasn't spent on planning for a second wave instead. The focus was on trying to quickly try to start catching up with planned care which had been cancelled and delayed from the first wave. I think the other reason which was given was there other facilities already there were nightingale hospitals and things like that but know unfortunately they just not not of the scale and not of the right kind of facility which which could be used they have however started in the north west started using the nightingale hospital. Which is in the dementia conference center for non kovic. Step down care in exactly the way they were talking about this. He's condo facility so they've they sort of done that as a halfway house but it costs. Central manchester is quite a long way from black paul or south yorkshire cumbria say whereas if they were looking to create more of those facilities around the region which and indeed back round england which which would have helped. Well they say. Hindsight is twenty twenty but i i think that really applies in this scenario given how many countless billions the government has spent on this virus so far to deny building extra capacity Is one they may be regretting already.

We are the Party of the NHS all the evidence shows that love of affection for its cuts across party political boundaries on a practical level. Any of US individually in our families loved ones reliant at birth Edessa and many times in between it's because voters rely on it and love it that the NHL is at the heart of this general. Election the Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn have very different decisions about how to run the health service leading to rouse about privatization privatize -ation drug prices on a possible trade deal with Donald Trump. Look I think everything with a trade deal is on the table when you when you're dealing and trade. Everything's the table from the Guardian. I'm initiative Astana today and focus is the NHS up for sale in the NHL is famous across the world as a state owned and state run health system But there are private companies involved in it. When did that begin although Labor now under Jeremy Corbyn Joe McDonnell are seeking grit political capital title on political trouble for Johnson? Co about privatizing. Anna's yes it was actually their party. The Labor Party that took more substantial steps towards introducing private companies. Dennis Campbell is health policy editor for the Guardian and The Observer. I was on a Tony Blair. In the early noughties two thousand and two three in response is too large numbers of people winning longtime for planned operations. Things like a cataract-removal a hernia repair a new hip knee. Being something I've got the waiting lists have come down. Dramatically treatment for things like heart disease and cancer completely transform. The Blair government issued a number of contracts. What we're called? Is Independent sector treatment. Centers they were basically contracts for privately. Run medical facilities to do lots and lots of these operations to get the politically unacceptable witness. Stunt okay so that happened under new Labour in two thousand and ten. The Tories came to power. It is only three letters long long. Letters live hopes David Cameron said his priority was an H. S.. The narrative is that the Tories allowed creeping privatization beyond what we'd seen before that is that true that's right. It's true that the amount of money going to private companies has been going up every year here for the last five or six years. At least it's very hard to get absolutely exact figures of this. The Department of Health Sound. You'll come out every July. Show that in twenty any fourteen fifteen it was eight point seven billion and last year twenty. It nineteen had gone up to nine point two billion title of what that's out of a total one hundred twenty five billion in England last year a knots about seven percent of the budget just in the last few days The Guardian has reported that the number of the patients who then a chess has paid for to be operated on in private hostels in England has pretty much doubled since the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten from roughly the three hundred thousand people a year to over six hundred thousand people a year. I'm what are the arguments that driving up private provision. Well the arguments are that the Anna chess as we see almost every day on the news visibly cannot cope with the demands. Being placed upon demands for energy has Kara going up to four five six seven percent a year then a chest budget and staffing and capacitor things in terms of operating theatres and so on is not keeping pace with that therefore increasingly energy trust in England are having having to do a little deals with local private hostels to take on fifty patients here under patient. There undo them to keep their own individual trust witting lists done. You'll also have the for the government politically difficult reality that the total number of people waiting in England for a planned knowledge and Operation Hospital is now over four point four million people out as Salat so one in every fifteen people in England is waiting for an operation met in. We're waiting for many many many months sometimes over six months and occasionally over a year therefore the private private sector is back in the space where increasingly winning contracts now because the concourse and. Why didn't they spend that taxpayer? Money on increasing their own resources rather than on private companies because the main thing chess lacks staff doctors nurses particularly. They all take time to train on one of the signal failures of the government signal failures in recent sneers towards the NFL has been a catastrophic loss of focus on the workforce problem. And yet it's taken them for too long to realize the scale of the problem on the nature of the problem means that ten years Trinity Dr Three or four years to in Midwife that it takes ages to turn that ship around here are the companies awarded contracts. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of private companies that provide healthcare on a smaller large-scale to the an England probably the best known The we are. The Guardian of focused on a lot in recent in years is version. Care One of Richard Branson's companies eight at the last count hard more than four hundred different contracts to provide different sorts of of care and different sorts services so then the private hustle group spar hospitals They they do quite a lot of these operations. So there's there's a vast array most of them are not names that are known to the to the public. Some them operate on Innova localised basis on this very few those kind of big big companies okay so that's the current state of play. What has the impact been on Kerr? So in truth it's a mixed picture. That'd be unfair to suggest all privately provided healthcare is a perk. It's definitely not quite a little bit. Services that are provided are run perfectly adequately adequately there are no problems raised about them by patients by regulators by stop groups anything but we have seen some significant problems. There's a long and and sorry history of private providers winning contracts from NHS organizations usually by undercutting them in price to quite a large degree and then finding surprise surprise of the count- provide the quality of care in the West expected on either. Having the contract taken can wife them or sometimes shively how contract back because they can't deliver it properly because healthcare is expensive and complicated. It's not an easy thing to make money out of several years ago on the south coast of England company called Co performer. One Country to provide a non urgent patient transport services taking people requiring health care to and from from Hustle. Appointments not kind of sexy stuff not having blue lights not the stuff of TV dramas but really really important for the patients and their and their and their families on the huge undercut the local energy service have been doing it for years and years on the call. The service went to rack and ruin literally almost from day. One cancer patients weren't being taken in for their operations. Kidney patients weren't going into Alice's also says weren't turning up. There was a huge outcry and rightly they lost the contract now. ofter seven months of misery. The controversial company is to be stripped of his contract. All of Sussex Care Commissioning groups agreeing. CELESTICA has been quite right a lot of examples like that and that's physical health. But the private sector's being heavily. Used in mental health services isn't it. There's a real emerging problem not about privately funded inpatient mental healthcare since the start of twenty. Seventeen the care called the commission. The chess regulator in England has issued very critical reports under put into special measures. No fewer than thirty different private mental health hospitals in England. Thirty in less than three years on private companies are making. I think it's about one. And a half billion pounds. A year of Energy has budget goes to proudly provided mental health care. That's incredibly worrying worrying. I mean half. The government acknowledged these problems. Do they accept privatization. May Be to blame have they done anything to rein in what's interesting about. What s prioritization? As politically shoe nar is that certainly theresa. May's government accepted publicly in detail. The need to greatly rule back privatization position of chess care in England and recently Anna Chessington produce the legislative proposals the basis for a bill to unwind a lot of the increased competition competition outsourcing that flowed from the underlying health and social care. Act Back in twenty twelve some clear yet whether Boris Johnson has the same desire that treasa mated to roll this back. Would you rule light expanding the use of the private sector in the house service. We are putting thirty. Four billion didn't few. BBC's lower couldn't bargain. She asked him. Would you continue the extension privatization and and she has unsurprisingly to me. He didn't say no what I what I will tell. You have coasted dentists optometrists and so on who. who was? That's interesting because it's pretty clear to me that the Tories worry about the NHS as an issue they know that voters really care about it and they know that they have historically got a bad reputation. TATION destroy I mean. Members of the public and staff have confronted. Boris Johnson on. His endless hospital visits Chris. Coach's player Dominic Cummings the Tories. Chief strategist strategist has been previously filled. Basically suggesting that a lot of Tory. MP's don't care about the NHL. Was One of the core problems of the Tory party brand going back decades. Yes people think by the way and I think most people are right. The Tory party is lone likely basically. Don't care about people like me so they're trying to show that they do care about this but is it about perception rather than reality. So Energy has privatization politically. It's tricky particularly for the Tories for whom it appears to be toxic recently just last week. The guarding got hold of a leaked copy of a a set of instructions. A handbook in effect.
