Re: Maybe they should consider going over to Linux?
@timul20 - But that is really my point: the NHS has always been shambling bureaucratic 'Frankenstein's monster'; a cobbled together collection of institutions and services all operating under the politically useful collective known as 'NHS'.
The dependence on bought in services, without any overall long term planning or structure, is symptomatic of that approach.Down the line, we are all reaping the consequences.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, of course, but so also would be politicians who know when to engage, enable, and sustain people who genuinely have a clue. But in the 'real world' that hardly ever happens.
