The heads of 10 organizations, including medical charities and professional bodies, have warned that Britain's state-funded National Health Service (NHS) and social services in the UK are "at breaking point." They will require an additional £30 billion ($48 billion) by 2020 to close their funding deficit.

Below is the text of the letter sent by The British Medical Association, The Royal College of Nursing, The Royal College of GPs, The Alzheimer's Society, The Anthony Nolan Trust, The MS Society, The Royal National Institute of Blind People, The Teenage Cancer Trust, The Family Doctor Association and The Faculty of Public Health:

The NHS and our social care services are at breaking point and things cannot go on like this. An NHS deficit of £30 billion is predicted by 2020 — a funding black hole that must be filled.

While we welcome the fact that the NHS has risen to the top of the political agenda, and some new spending commitments have been made, we need a comprehensive, fully costed, long-term spending plan if an NHS true to its founding principles of universal healthcare, provided according to need not ability to pay, is secured for future generations.

It must also take into account the need for vital social care. This will also require a guarantee that the NHS will be protected from another top-down reorganization which is not in the best interests of patients, and distracts from the severe, long-term funding pressures facing the health service. The NHS, social services, health and care professionals and above all, the British people, deserve no less.

The letter will add to pressure on the political parties in Westminster as they attempt to prove their budgetary responsibility with pledges to cut spending in the next parliament. Although the Conservatives have committed to protecting NHS spending, while Labour leader Ed Miliband promised a spending boost of £3 billion a year, neither party has yet said anything about how the NHS will close its projected deficit by 2020 nor how they plan to reform the health service to address rising costs over the longer term.

The British as well as the French simply have to look at societies that have their health system under control and which ones do not.

Clearly the Germans are in control- 14-15% of salary-and wages up to a franchise of roughly 3,5K Euros per month (normally split equally between employee and employer), creates a surplus at the insurers simply because the state collectively bargains with BP on the prices of medication and sets the DRG rates for hospital care and treatments on a central level, without restraining private initiative and having a system that "combats" inefficiencies brought in by the EMA - the European FDA.
I assure you- the standard of care is extremely high. I found out by personal experience. :grin:

Clearly it does not harm to have a peek across the ocean to see how NOT to do it. Nobody can afford that and the standards will only benefit the rich who can afford it.

Regenerative medicine will help sometime in the future in my view, although it might take a few years for this having an impact... :really:

An example why this is likely to be, one only needs to look at BAMI- the 3000 patient pan-european clinic on AMI with whole bone-marrow.

Obviously this process is NOT funded by BP- but by health care orgs and will pave the way for regenerative medicine. ADRCs will have their fair share going forward. :cool:

That reminds me- I discovered important news on REPAIR-AMI and the quality of cells. Will come next week sometime. :winky:

***The full study involves 19 partners across France, Germany, Italy, Finland, Denmark, Spain, Belgium, Poland, the Czech Republic and the UK.***

So how do this many "partners" sign up for a BM study and Cytori takes 2 years for 25 patients ATHENA patients ?

:whistle: This is really the Phase III, which folks have been waiting for since 2006, when REPAIR-AMI first reported results (204 patients- a Phase II really).

It took 6 years for the countries involved to decide to do it and also some time to get it funded, which all was done by 2012.

The preparation for BAMI took > 2 years :winky:

Cytori is not alone. :yawn:
