An article by Mo Girach for the NHS Alliance. The piece comments on the implications of two recent pieces of legislation impacting on the delivery of health care services (particularly by independent charities and social enterprises) – the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 and the Localism Act 2011. Both should become active forces during 2013.
Good morning, I have heard about a renal unit possibly in Kingston(?) who are somehow reducing the weight of their renal waste considerably, presumably by emptying all the fluid out of the bags by some process. I am interested in learning about this and was wondering whether you have any contact or further leads about this please? Many thanks, Dan Goohdind
My wife and I were invited to attend as patients the Green Nephrology Summit 2012. It was well managed and inspiring event. We had international perspective with a delegate from Australia who was bemused that we are controlled by Risk Assessments and seemingly insane H&S and Infection control guidelines that make progress and sustainability difficult.
