I'm a bit busy at the moment (although my lurgy has mostly cleared up and my Measles blood test has come back negative, so I can return to work tomorrow starting at 'Oh my God o'clock').
I just want to draw your attention to this newstory – it's something I'm currently researching by trawling through official papers.
The short version is that in a few years time the people who 'buy' health services in the UK will be required to contract out some of the 999 A&E ambulance services to private companies.
I happen to think that this is a bad idea, and the BBC has picked up on it recently as well.
More on this once I've had a chance to research it properly.

Utterly unconnected, but there is an interesting Guardian article about how the government might deal with internet and social networking communication during a terrorist attack – I'd hope that this has no basis in fact as to do what is suggested would (a) probably not work (b) cause more problems than it solves and (c) almost certainly be illegal.
