Can Gerry Robinson Fix the NHS? One Year on

Synopsis
One year later after his first visit, Gerry Robinson revisits Rotherham General Hospital to see how they are coping. What he finds both surprises and delights him. The hospital is now run efficiently, waiting lists are down and staff relations are excellent. But there are clouds on the horizon. With government policy encouraging more out of hospital care in the community, what is the future for the hospital? Gerry takes a long, hard look at what is planned for the NHS and asks whether it really adds up and whether it will really deliver the change the service needs to face the challenges of the coming years.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
