Unit 6- How changes to funding impact the NHS and how market forces make use of fundiWatch this thread
I’m stuck on access to midwife diploma-Unit 6. How changes to funding impact the NHS and how the introduction of market forces have attempted to make more affective use of funding?
Any ideal or explanation please?
I would be really grateful for a point in the right direction please? ☺️
As a matter of interest, to attempt to answer a part of it, which funding changes are you referring to?
On the last bit though, the general mantra is market forces weed out uncompetitive and overpriced suppliers/contractors etc etc. thus letting them bid for access to the NHS's massive market should, in theory, drive down prices and improve standards. Whether it has/does do this is debatable though. Not least because allowing people to bid for any form of contract (take trains, construction etc.) they always underbid, underprovide and have massive cost over runs. Although the last bit might just be my cynicism showing
