"In the latest of a never-ending stream of moans about UK government budget 'cuts,' the Royal College of Nursing warns of looming reductions in front-line staff with the inevitable but unproven danger of a 'catastrophic' effect on care. This is a knee-jerk defence used by all vested interests which confuse the way something is produced with the purpose of the production. The purpose of the NHS is not to maintain a set level of employment; it is to improve the health of its patients." (04/12/11)
