A Simpler NHS

We Brits love the NHS – almost unconditionally. Now more than ever it is in crisis from threats of restructure, efficiency and the ever-looming privatisation. More money would always be welcome, though some frontline staff think there’s another way. To embrace Simplicity. To change the culture. To value our people. To make it work.

If like us, you love the NHS and want to see it not only survive but thrive, read this book.

Where else have you seen doctors and managers act together with one message? It only takes a few to question the status quo.

One chapter tells of change being inevitable, so we should harness it. It talks of pints of process and gallons of passion. It slams the culture of three letter acronyms (3LAs), of measuring everything. It looks at actually finding out what the patient’s goals are not just providing generic care plans according to diagnosis.

Read it. You might just see sparks of a new beginning in NHS culture. Part of the community, not run for the benefit of the ‘system’.

Highly Recommended—easy to read and understand. Keep It Simple.
