Clear Evidence

I was speaking about my previous post to a delivery contractor, and he mentioned that there would be some industries that would be especially hard to replace employees with contractors.

Particularly, primary schools. This I didn’t have much of a response for, and he is likely correct.

But. He also mentioned hospitals. Now this one is different. There’s a nice piece from The Telegraph (surprising I know!) about changes to the NHS in the UK.

There’s one line that’s particularly damning for the argument that employees are essential for hospitals.

“The NHS is also sub-contracting out routine procedures – think cataract surgery, hip and knee operations – to help it cope. It doesn’t cost the health service a penny more to do this. More often than not, these specialist surgical centres can do the procedures cheaper than the NHS and with better outcomes.”

Doctors need financial literacy too.
