What’s next for the Ticket Clinic?
- by admin
Ticket clinics in the UK are being shut down, and patients are now left without a place to get their medicine.
The NHS has now cancelled a second operation for a patient who was taken off a waiting list for a second treatment at a clinic in Leicester, following an investigation into the alleged misuse of the money raised by the lottery.
The clinic, the Clinic of the Medicine in Leicester and the Clinic in Leicester West were all closed following the coronavirus pandemic.
They were run by the ticket clinic, which had previously run one in Southwark.
The two clinics were operating in separate buildings in the heart of London, where people with life-threatening conditions have been treated in the past.
The closure of the clinic comes after the NHS announced it would cut staff to try to ease the pressure on its emergency care system.
“The NHS needs to be doing more with less, not more,” said Jeremy Browne, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union.
“The NHS is now in the same position it was in when it closed the Ticket clinic in 2013.
The government said it would reduce staff by more than 50 per cent and had set a target of saving £10m ($13.5m) a year by 2020.
But health secretary Chris Grayling said it was “not a cost-saving measure”.
The government also plans to cut other staff and shut down the remaining clinics across the country, with most in the Midlands, where there is an acute shortage of hospital beds.”
But in terms of the NHS itself, we know that the health service has the capacity to manage the crisis and deliver the services we need.””
There is a huge shortage of beds and there are pressures on the NHS to get to grips with the crisis.”
But in terms of the NHS itself, we know that the health service has the capacity to manage the crisis and deliver the services we need.
“The NHS was forced to close the ticket clinics in 2013 following an undercover investigation into how patients were being treated.
The clinics operated out of a clinic on the site of a shopping centre, which was closed following a £1m shortfall in the money donated by the public.
They operated as a “mini-hospital”, which offered free surgery to people who needed it, and had been operating out of the Royal Marsden Hospital in Oxfordshire, which also closed.
The second clinic opened in Leicester in 2013 and became the largest NHS operation in England.
It operated at the same premises but with more staff.
The health secretary said in a statement the closures were a “major blow” to the NHS and he was “extremely disappointed” by the “fiscal situation that we now face”.
The NHS announced that it would close the Ticket clinics as part of a “wide-ranging review of services” following the pandemic in 2015.
In September, the UK’s health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, told the BBC the NHS was “at a critical moment”.
But he said the closure was the “final nail in the coffin” of ticket clinics.
Mr Browne said the closures had a “tangible impact on patients and the NHS”.”
We are now facing a crisis in the NHS.
We have to do everything we can to make sure that the NHS has the resources to get through this crisis.”””
We are looking at a reduction of 1,500 staff.
We have to do everything we can to make sure that the NHS has the resources to get through this crisis.””
We need to be looking at the impact of these closures on patients, their families, the NHS in general and the wider economy.”
The National Health Service (NHS) said it has been “overwhelmingly supportive” of the closure of ticket clinic operations.”NHS is committed to ensuring that all NHS services are as accessible as possible to all patients, while at the end of the day maintaining the safety of patients and staff,” a spokesman said.
“It is not possible to continue operating ticket clinics and we are committed to finding a suitable alternative to the Ticket Clinics.”
