Yet again and at the risk of upsetting Andy AKA Kawasaki it is to do with money.

Patients developing bed sores have much longer stays in hospital (we haven't got enough beds as it is) and cost the NHS an extra 11K to 40K each patient I am told. I have seen the figure 2.1 billion quoted as a cost to the NHS.


Don't forget "we've never had it so good".
