No surprises here...

Well, it seems Dr Janet Soo-Chung's stewardship of our under-performing PCT has come to an end. Whether or not she can be held entirely or partially liable for the dreadful ongoing debts, withdrawal of services and inability improve their financial position is open to question and probably beyond our means to ever find out. But hopefully whoever takes charge of the PCT will recognise that, first and foremost, the PCT is there to provide healthcare at a local level, steered by Government and NICE guidelines on what should be provided.

And of course that means they should finally open their eyes and provide the Assisted Conception services that 148 of the nation's 151 PCTs already provide.

Don't hold your breath though - it seems North Yorkshire and York PCT have the financial competence of an Icelandic savings bank.
