ISC Medical Comments on Government’s Health Reforms Rejection

London, United Kingdom, (24th January, 2012) – One of the country’s leading providers of medical interviews and interview skills consultancy services, ISC Medical, comment on the recent rejection of the government’s health reforms by the BMA and the Royal College of Nursing.

Some argue that the reforms’ such rejections are in fact symbolic, as much of the reforms have progressed so far already that much of it is irreversible. As PCTs have started to merge into clusters and redundancies have been affected, the practical reality of the reforms is emerging.

ISC Medical believes it will be a while before commissioning is properly implemented, as the NHS will have more time to prepare itself against the inevitable structural changes that the reforms will bring – particularly, the introduction of external providers within the equation.

Olivier Picard, MD of ISC Medical, commented: “Preparing a department to compete in a business and efficiency-orientated world takes great skills. For most doctors, this can present quite a challenge. Lack of management and leadership, highlighted in many official reports, is a particular problem – as is the lack of understanding of current NHS reforms and NHS issues.

“Our management and leadership course allows doctors to learn about how they can more efficiently manage their time, negotiate, and lead in a more proactive, assertive way. The course is based on the NHS’s new Medical and Clinical Competency Frameworks and delivered by clinicians and corporate trainers, thus addressing the management and leadership needs of doctors in a relevant and applicable manner.”
