Real Cuts

Health Minister Matthews claims that the 1.5% 'increase' in hospital funding means that hosptial cuts are not necesary. I guess all the bed cuts, elimination of services, and layoff notices are imaginary.

Prediction: unless there is more money found, neither Matthews, the LHINs, nor the hosptials will spend much time reversing cutbacks. The real question is: how much more trouble will this funding level bring?  And what is in the non-base hosptial funding increases?
