24 June 2020 — The Lowdown
Evidence-based journalism and research on the NHS to create change.
Here are three issues from this week’s Lowdown: A&Es are being closed as a temporary measure, but often in areas where NHS leaders have been trying to permanently close them in the face of strong public objections. (2) How residents in care homes and their carers were left unprotected. (3) Private hospitals are being set up to help with huge NHS waiting lists, but who will benefit and what does the NHS need?
Please share our content and do let us know if you have a story you think we should cover from your area.
