 Simon Stevens MiP Summit 2017

Chancellor must choose between extra funding or service cuts, says health managers' union

MiP responds to today's speech by Simon Stevens and reports from several influential healthcare bodies on NHS funding.

“Our members are local managers in the NHS. They know the impact underfunding is having on care. They know the freeze on investment in pay, our workforce and infrastructure can't go on. They know that there are few short term efficiencies left to achieve and that transforming services requires investment and time. They know the only answer is extra funding.”

Tipster extended play: how to work with doctors

With patient demand rising as the funding noose tightens, relations between doctors and managers can become strained. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Umesh Prabhu shares more of his tips for working more effectively with your medical colleagues.

Doctors and managers often have an uneasy relationship because both are under severe pressure for different reasons. Doctors are struggling to provide the best care, but there isn’t enough money and they often have to work within poor systems and processes. Managers have to manage budgets and meet targets. To work together, you must make the effort to understand each other’s difficulties and needs.

NHS funding: tell us where it hurts

MiP is encouraging members to talk about their personal experiences managing NHS services under financial pressure. Craig Ryan explains the thinking behind the new campaign and talks to two groups of managers at the sharp end of NHS funding cuts.

To win the argument for better NHS funding we need to talk about people, not just statistics. We need to talk about patients and the services they rely on, and about the NHS staff who do their best to deliver quality care however tough it gets.

All NHS staff need a pay rise that’s above inflation, say health unions

The 14 health unions, including MiP, are asking Chancellor Philip Hammond to earmark funds in the November Budget for a pay rise in line with inflation, with an additional £800 to restore some of the pay lost over the past seven years.
