All parties seem to think that throwing money at the NHS is the cure-all: yes, money is needed but more than that is the need to strip out layer after layer of useless tiers of management and equally useless managers.

A TYPICAL 4 HOUR NHS MEETING! 

Talk to any clinician and watch their eyes roll as they describe chaotic management and gross waste.
The rumour is that in the bowels of Chelsea & Westminster there are several hundred thousand pound plus scanners still in packing cases!
But on to a more mundane example…

The Dame was chatting to the head of her excellent GP surgery and raised the question of the many patients on its books who have moved well out of the area. 
The poor old doc sighed and said, ‘yes, we know but the government won’t allow us to remove them’

Sheer madness!

Madder still is the number of people who don’t keep appointments. One doctor alone said she had at least one hundred ‘no shows’ a month. 
Multiply that over the several doctors and you can see the magnitude of the problem.
A £50 fine for a missed appointment without good reason should concentrate the mind-especially serial ‘no shows’.
