As we approach the next general election, the Tories are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to suggesting cuts in the health care budget. And yet, with expenditure now topping £2 billion a week, there is no better area in which to start economising. The amount of money that has been wasted over the last twelve years is breathtaking. Much of the waste comes from the government obsession with the process of healthcare as opposed to its delivery.

We engage with organisations in order to create, encourage and support a healthcare culture that involves individuals and communities on many levels."
