Care BnB nudging Bedroom Tax victims into becoming unqualified nurses?

Post by Admin on Fri Oct 27, 2017 6:56 am

The Conservatives’ latest privatisation bid for the NHS is about getting poor families to do the jobs of qualified nurses – and seems to be a cynical attempt to take advantage of the plight of Bedroom Tax victims.

The scheme – dubbed ‘Care BnB’ in imitation of the ‘Air BnB’ model it resembles (although other organisations have already adopted that name, so it isn’t entirely suitable) – would see patients discharged after operations and sent to nearby homes to recuperate, with those renting the rooms receiving up to £1,000 a month.

This looks like a slow motion car crash of an idea.

A proposal for trained B&B owners to look after discharged patients should be considered, a health minister said this morning - just days after a similar idea sparked outrage.

Philip Dunne said the Government and NHS should “not close our minds to looking at new ways of doing things”.

An NHS hospital in Essex was forced to back down this week over plans to offer people £1,000 a month to host recovering patients in their spare rooms.

Surely B&B proprietors would then have to become hospital directors and their premises be subject to inspection by the care quality commission.

Phillip Dunne should eat less cheese at night. He appears to be having some very silly dreams. geek
