Cleaning up in the NHS

One of the highlights of conference for me was hearing Nicola Sturgeon announce in her address that she was, as of Monday, banning all health boards from any plans to further privatise hospital cleaning services. Brilliant idea. Actually, it's not brilliant it's just one of those things that anyone with a grain of common sense and a desire to drive down the instance of hospital acquired infection, would do. Thankfully Nicola has more than a grain and used the other grains to good effect too. Indeed she has announced that families on income support with a child under 5 or a disabled child under 16, will be eligible for the free central heating scheme! Told you she wasn't just a pretty face!
