Quality of care is ‘not a priority’ in NHS PharmaTimes Quality of care is ‘not a priority’ in NHS. New survey of NHS professionals finds a vast majority do not believe that quality of care in the health service is given enough priority.

David Lewis‘s insight:

Quality of care is priority for all healthcare professionals who have direct contact with patients; anyone who doesn’t should be removed from frontline services in my opinion. However, health service managers may subscribe to Welfare Utilitarianism philosophy which places quantity over quality; a philosophy which must be challenged if (UK) citizens want assurance of quality care when required.
