NHS "indicators of success" : what do they tell us ?
In the absence of any systematic evaluation of the changes it has made to the NHS, the government cites three « indicators of success. » These are record numbers of patients treated, shorter waiting times for hospital treatment, and more children being immunised against the main childhood diseases.
Closer inspection of the statistics reveals that they do not support the conclusions inferred from them and that they are misleading measures of the impact of the changes made to the NHS.
